Reverse Word Pairs

My solution to a programming test from 2014


This was my attempt at a programming challenge I did a few years ago. The goal was to find all reverse pairs in a text file, in the fastest way possible. I tried out a few ideas and measured the average runtime to find out which one would be the fastest. The original test was done in C++ but I also added a Rust version of the test.
