Puzzle Regex: Letter Frequency Arithmetic Sequenceby QM (Parson)
|on Oct 17, 2017 at 15:03 UTC||Need Help??|
QM has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I ran across a blog post about an interesting word characteristic, and wondered if a regex can be written to match this (e.g., with the plan to search a dictionary file). I suspect the answer is no, without invoking the magic "code in a regex".
Unfortunately, I don't have time now to try my hand at it, but I thought I'd post it here for everyone to have a go.
Update: Possible puzzles:
1) Find the longest words where each letter used has a different frequency.
Use any dictionary you like. If you have a mahvelous dictionary, drop a link here.
