The data should have been labelled from the end of each month rather than from the beginning - then there wouldn't be the anomaly on the 31st.

I.e. n[i] should be sum over all days d of tickets[d] where d is the i-th day from the end of the month that d occurs in.

Does "ms" mean milliseconds or microseconds? And are these times for one iteration of the code fragment?

2 milliseconds to compare two strings seems awfully slow.

Definitely microseconds, most of my scripts with database interaction and all fully complete in around 50 milliseconds which would be impossible if string comparison took 2 milliseconds.

-----


When you do a benchmark you usually run the code more than once. It's milliseconds. The real question is how many time the code loop.

But anyway the interesting number is how many times it's slower compared to an equivalent code.

I think the point was that you racked up frequent flier miles for using your credit card.
