Thanks, that is very interesting. Why would you create 26 pointers before you need them? It seems to me each node would have zero pointers until you add a child letter. Nodes would then only contain as many pointers as they have children letters. I must be missing something on why you create them in advance. It would be 100% memory efficient if you only created them when they are needed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
