Shiny new toy

The other day I wrote some software to solve a specific problem. But then I asked myself “what next”?

And I realized that what I really wanted to do was make it generic. That is, I wanted to take the most interesting part of it — the core algorithm — and turn that into a software library for solving lots of other problems.

That meant a bit of rewriting of the code. But once that was done, I had a shiny new toy to play with, which I can now use for lots of different things.

And maybe that’s the best part.
