Thank you all my reader for following up on the “Infinity” subject. This chapter is the sub-release chapter of Chapter 3 – Optimised The Code for Ruby in the Infinity subject. This is a very short chapter before I move onto chapter four of the subject. I will start releasing chapter four of the Infinity subject as early as Saturday this week or latest is by Sunday this week. The modification in the code is just to make the code operate a bit quicker and more flexible.

I modified the code to make the program more flexible in terms of to be able to change the amount of digit the program can work with at a time. The _digit variable can be modified to adapt the program to work with how many digits at a time bases on the environment the program is working with. I set the infiX program to work with nine digits at a time and also tested the program in the Ruby 2.3.1 environment.

What had been modified? I introduced the _pad0 variable into the code. The _pad0 variable holds the amount of zero that need to be added to a result value for each cycle of multiplication. This was explained in the previous chapter. I changed the prepos variable name to digitneg to make the code more understandable.

After all the changes the same benchmark test for the previous version of infiX was applied to this version of infiX. For this version of infiX, the program took **10.798** seconds to computes the multiplication result 100,000 times for the same two strings of digits, each string contained 40 digits and both strings did not contain the decimal. The earlier production version for normal usage of infiX took 22.300 seconds to compute the result for the same test. With the decimal, this version of infiX took **11.541** seconds while the earlier version of infiX took 24.158 seconds to compute the result. This version of infiX-vr-2 was set to compute nine digits at a time.

What took me so long to release this chapter although it was short? In the last couple days, I have been a bit busy. I just finished launching a brand new web directory for anyone who owns a blog or a website that contain a good amount of articles can submit their website to be inclusive in the directory. If you have a blog, please feel free to submit your website’s link at http://directory.iblog.website. Iblog.website‘s main site was also launched. I also launched a brand new web shop to separate the e-commerce operation from the blog. The shop can be found at http://shop.iblog.website.

This below is the updated test code to compare the result from this version to any previous infiX program. If you run this test code from the console, it will be more interactive and display more meaningful information while the test cases are executing.

um = 0 m = 0 for id in 0...50000 a1 = rand(0...99999) a2 = rand(0...99999) a3 = rand(0...99999) a4 = rand(0...99999) a5 = rand(0...99999) ac1 = rand(0...99999) ac2 = rand(0...99999) ac3 = rand(0...99999) ac4 = rand(0...99999) ac5 = rand(0...99999) b1 = rand(0...99999) b2 = rand(0...99999) b3 = rand(0...99999) b4 = rand(0...99999) b5 = rand(0...99999) bc1 = rand(0...99999) bc2 = rand(0...99999) bc3 = rand(0...99999) bc4 = rand(0...99999) bc5 = rand(0...99999) padA1 = "" padA2 = "" padB1 = "" padB2 = "" idn = 0 idn2 = 0 while ( idn < rand(0...15) ) do padA1 = "0" + padA1 idn = idn + 1 end while ( idn < rand(15...30) ) do padA2 = "0" + padA2 idn = idn + 1 end while ( idn2 < rand(0...15) ) do padB1 = "0" + padB1 idn2 = idn2 + 1 end while ( idn2 < rand(15...30) ) do padB2 = "0" + padB2 idn2 = idn2 + 1 end ta = "+" + a1.to_s + a2.to_s + a3.to_s + a4.to_s + a5.to_s + "." + padA1 + ac1.to_s + ac2.to_s + ac3.to_s + padA2 + ac4.to_s + ac5.to_s; tb = "-" + b1.to_s + b2.to_s + b3.to_s + b4.to_s + b5.to_s + "." + padB1 + bc1.to_s + bc2.to_s + bc3.to_s + padB2 + bc4.to_s + bc5.to_s; test1 = LibZ.infiX(ta, tb) test2 = LibZ.infiX2(ta, tb) puts "Cases ##{id}: #{ta} * #{tb}" if (test1 != test2) um = um + 1 puts ("Unmatched : ##{ um }") puts ("Question" + " : " + ta + " * " + tb ) puts ("Version 3: " + test1 ) puts ("Version 2: " + test2 ) end if (test1 == test2) m = m + 1 end puts end puts "Matched ##{m}" puts "Unmatched ##{um}"

This is the infiX version vr 2 that was written for Ruby.
