Both yours and Gabor's methods were far superior to mine. I am curious 
why you like Gabor's better than yours. From the perspective of someone 
who uses R regularly but has only read about C, yours seems more 
"R-like". Would Gabor's be more computationally efficient if the loop 
was big enough?

I ask this because it made me ask myself, "are the C-like functions of R 
'better' (computationally) than the more R-like ones?"

Am I making sense?
