I guess that I do a lot more cryptanalysis than I would normally own up to, then, though I've spent most of my computing time analysing bytes rather than individual bits. I suppose you're counting byte order and endianness as metadata, but those aren't too hard to sort out for various common forms of data, even when corrupted. I think perhaps you're taking the day-to-day work of taking information about which not everything is known and using it and recasting that as some kind of far more complex process. Perhaps it is difficult, but I hardly thought Walter was talking rocket science. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
