Dear community, a little bit of fun today. I recently saw an algorithm that really surprised me by his effectivity. Mankind has known this algorithm for some time. I tried an implementation in ABAP out of interest. I hope the implementation works 😉 What is the name?

I put the answer in mirror writing under the source code. Hold a mirror to your screen. Instead of a mirror a smartphone screen is sufficient to "decode", too 🙂

If someone also has a little algorithm riddle, feel free to write a blog. If the implementation doesn't work properly, no problem. I guess there are some members here who can fix this 😉

CLASS-METHODS do_something
IMPORTING
x TYPE i
y TYPE i
RETURNING
VALUE(result) TYPE i.
[..]
METHOD do_something.
IF x = 1.
result = y.
ELSE.
IF x MOD 2 > 0.
result = y + do_something( x = x DIV 2
y = y + y ).
ELSE.
result = do_something( x = x DIV 2
y = y + y ).
ENDIF.
ENDIF.
ENDMETHOD.

Here ist the answer:

Best regards and thanks for reading
