Hi Marc, The second part will inevitably be slower. In the first part you are traversing one file of ~2,500 lines. For the second part you are traversing multiple, say 10, files with a total of 95,000 lines of text. Please don't get too fixated on speed. In truth, I have written the marking code so that each test runs to a time limit (just in case a program goes into an infinite loop). I will be setting generous margins on top of what my system takes, on the basis that a fair portion of the class will be happy to get something working and I don't want to mess with that. There is a premium on passing tests (80% you'll) recall, versus 20% for style, of which runtime, if it matters at all, will be a small component. Cheers MichaelW
