* Perform a binary search. | |

* | |

* The code below is a bit sneaky. After a comparison fails, we | |

* divide the work in half by moving either left or right. If lim | |

* is odd, moving left simply involves halving lim: e.g., when lim | |

* is 5 we look at item 2, so we change lim to 2 so that we will | |

* look at items 0 & 1. If lim is even, the same applies. If lim | |

* is odd, moving right again involes halving lim, this time moving | |

* the base up one item past p: e.g., when lim is 5 we change base | |

* to item 3 and make lim 2 so that we will look at items 3 and 4. | |

* If lim is even, however, we have to shrink it by one before | |

* halving: e.g., when lim is 4, we still looked at item 2, so we | |

* have to make lim 3, then halve, obtaining 1, so that we will only | |

* look at item 3. | |
