I’d like to nominate Heshy’s answer to my question. In under twenty minutes he took the initiative to hack together some Python code to compile the entire Shas Mishnayos and sort by initial letter of each Mishnah. Tizku l’Mitzvos, thank you for your tremendous help, and may we never know more sorrow.

    Amen and thank you! There was some serious siyata dishmaya at play here. I usually need a lot more iterations of debugging before my code works.

I think this answer form Robev is very valuable, because it contains references to comments not well known, as the comment of Rabbi Avraham Abulafia.

Such answers are helpful for learning. Links are very allow to get texts quickly.
