In summary, the basic algorithm made sense from the start, was rather straight-forward and gives the desired results. However, in JavaScript it wasn’t fast enough. My expectations of JavaScript performance were totally wrong. Basically the whole week was lost in first trying to make the JavaScript version run faster—without success—and then in learning how to do it right in C++. If I had more experience in this, I would have known to use C++ to begin with and wouldn’t have spent so much time on JavaScript performance. Quite embarrassing really.
