Binary Search -- Mmmm, tasty!

I stumbled across Tim Bray's article on binary search, and simply felt compelled to pass it along.

It's well-written, concise, and even if as a software developer you've got binary search down pat, it's still a pleasure to read a well-written explanatory article about something so fundamental to our craft.

So if you need a little refresher on the details of binary search, and why it's so gosh darn useful, or you need to roll your own because you need to make some small variations to the basic algorithm (which was my situation and why I went looking for some articles on this subject), give it a read.

Good technical writing stands the test of time.
