in thread Challenge: Algorithm To Generate Bubble Blast 2 Puzzles With Difficulty

QM,
I considered this. Every game I have ever played, my starting move has always been where I can get the biggest chain reaction or set a chain reaction. In other words, it may make sense to create algorithms that mimic real strategies to play the games rather than exhaustively brute forcing all possible ways to play the board.

I just can't find anything I am happy with and I knew that the amazing monks at the Monastery would point out something obvious (probably having to do with recursion) that I completely missed.

Cheers - L~R

[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
[Cosmic37]: you are right $mydt did not contain what I expected... :-D I will now think :-D
[Cosmic37]: crunch...grind... whirr...gnashing metal crunching cogs...
