I am a software technical lead for a team working on porting a large legacy enterprise application suite to a service based model and I am chair of a platform architecture council, whose responsibility is to drive forward common framework/architecture for various products.

Most of my experience is in back end software for real-time (both hard and soft) distributed systems written on various platform in various languages. Lately I have been doing a lot of this in C++ and C#.

I am passionate about solving problems and delivering software, and I enjoy learning how different languages and tools can enable and improve my efforts. These things mean I often find myself elbow-deep in source-control, and build and deployment infrastructure.

I am a new Raspberry Pi owner, and self-taught solder-er (is that a word?) and I'm hoping to use those in my recently acquired homebrewing hobby. I don't like to sit around...

Create an array of lists - pricePoints[priceRange] (don't forget to add one if zero is a legal price) for(book in collection) { pricePoints[book.price].add(book) }

@Karl - thanks! I think I noticed that at the same time and updated. I shouldn't write algorithms before my coffee. :)

@maple_shaft Yeah, that would be simpler and have the same result. Thanks.

comment Should static parameters in an API be part of each method?
Whoops. I guess I misunderstood. :) Sorry about that.

Oh - forgot to add that sorting can be O(n) because you know the value range, so you needn't use a general purpose sort.

You're right. We run into that from time to time - I missed it in my list.
