Therefore, the “reentry” step of Pathiyal is omitted in the claim 1 method, but the function of outputting a list is retained by claim 1. “While it may often be true that the mere omission of an element together with its function does not produce a patentable invention, it may also be unobvious to omit an element while retaining its function.” In re Edge, 359 F.2d 896, 899 (CCPA 1966). We are therefore, constrained to reverse this rejection.
