> That's surprising, because I did not nest any for loops, I simply iterate over each row of the csv file once and i'm taking 20-30 seconds. Is a file size of 2033 lines considered "colossal" or should I be concerned?
Hi, Greetings from Kalgoorlie. That is surprising. To inject a little precision into the discussin <grin> you can use the built-in Bash command time, to account for how much time a command actually takes. On my mid 2016 MacBook Pro, % time malaria_incidence 2004 For the year 2004, the country with the highest incidence was Solomon Islands, with a rate of 744 per 1,000 real 0m0.024s user 0m0.009s sys 0m0.015s So yes, if mine takes 0.024 seconds and yours takes ~20 seconds (making huge assumptions about comparable machines), then there may be a problem with efficiency that you care to look into. However, first things first: get something that works for both Parts of the assignment. Then improve them. Cheers MichaelW
