Talk:Just in time processing on a character stream
Good task except for this:
“Provide a reasonably interesting message to be decoded, e.g. Silence-Dogood. Your choice.”
No, absolutely definitely not. The task author should specify the sample text so that it is possible to compare results between languages. (Feel free to host the text here on a sub-page.) –Donal Fellows (talk) 13:22, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Vague specification: what is "i"?
Where does the value i come from?
Presumably, there must be multiple values of i, since one round of this algorithm prints only one character, which is hardly a good password.
Is the program supposed to step i through sequential integers? Starting at 0? 1? Or is a sequence of i values to be provided?
What is the meaning of "Just In Time" here?
This looks like a straightforward "batch" stream processing task.
