Great explanation Safia! And thanks for refreshing my memory. As an old timer of Python I do remember when Tim Peters added this algorithm, for a while it seemed like only the Python community had this "super power" at their disposal 😂

ps. The link "Timsort in CPython on GitHub." is broken and the link at the bottom points indeed to the C implementation. I wonder if you meant to link this: bugs.python.org/file4451/timsort.txt

Argh! Apologies. I was trying out Notion to write my blog posts and turns out it adds a redirect to all links in the exported Markdown. This is fixed now.
