  • Binary Interpolation on CSV Table

    Hi, Been here a while and learned a lot! For the life of me I had a hard time parsing CSV before and now got stuck with interpolation!

    Secondary reference column/filed
    item -1.0 -0.5 0.0 0.5 1.0
    23 0.25 0.27 0.28 0.30 0.34

    25 0.27 0.30 0.32 0.35 0.38

    Say I am looking for interpolated value of 24 and a secondary reference as -0.7
    So, in the table the values I am looking for are well between the columns reference and Item rows. Not sure really if this is called a binary interpolation or single interpolation. Appreciate much

    What exactly is your question?

    Binary search and Interpolation search are two different methods for searching through indexed arrays for key, value pairs but in your CSV you have a complex table (a la LUA).

      Binary search is possible for complex structures, as long as they are presentable as binary search trees.

        Sorry for the late reply.

        I was actually asking for a "double interpolation" using Lua in a csv file where columns/fields are not lower than 3 columns and rows of more than a 1000!

        The first column is the reference key to find its equivalent value from the fields/columns. Thus, interpolations is required if values are not exact on both keys and columns. sorry for my english...must be confusing!
