TMTOWTDI Puzzle: Generating a range of numbers
Are logical operators too obvious for this
sort of challenge?
$one="x" eq "x";
$two= $one << $one;
$three= $one | $two;
$four= $two << $one;
$five= $four | $one;
$six= $four | $two;
$seven= $four | $two | $one;
$eight= $four << $one;
$nine= $eight | $one;
$ten= $eight | $two;
print "$one $two $three $four $five $six $seven $eight $nine $ten\n";
This sort of thing comes up in computer design.
On the long path from transistors to programs,
implementations are crushingly brute-force!
It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
