Susume posed the question as what difference there might be in 10 calls of structure.WiggleAll(2) vs 1 call of structure.WiggleAll(20) in NewChapter. This thread attempts some initial effort at an answer.
The spider toxin puzzle was used (being deliciously small). Scores and times were recorded for various combinations of 64 total wiggles (32 calls of wig(2) through 1 call of wig(64); 6 combinations). Within each set of combinations, the same starting point was used. Three of these sets were run starting from puzzle reset, "somewhat settled", and from having been wiggled 250 times at CI=0.5 from that same "somewhat settled" state.
Results are presented graphically in the next few posts. The x-axis is the net number of wiggles (32 of wiggle(2) is 64, as is 8 of wiggle(8), etc). The time plots come from reads of os.time() which only has resolution of 1 sec. leading to some choppiness.
The start from reset case also included a zoom in after the initial jump.
