in reply to Character positioning

Here's another way of looking at your problem that may suggest to you a possible solution; you've got a bunch of characters in a string -- the word. For each letter, either it's a letter that's been guessed, or it isn't. If it has been guessed, just show the letter. Otherwise, show an underscore. You may find that treating the word as an array this way is useful.

perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'

[1nickt]: I had an interview couople of weeks ago, heard from a principal engineer that a friend of his who works at The Google told him that the self-teaching software that determines the dynamic pricing for their adverts...
[1nickt]: ... has become so complex that there is no one at the Goole who knows what it does.
[marto]: William Gibson was right
[moritz]: a classical problem with machine learning
[1nickt]: moritz isn;t the difference today that the machine learning algos are in charge of most stuffs?
[moritz]: depends on what you mean by "most stuff"
[1nickt]: I am sure I don't know about most of the stuff that is no longer controlled by humans. I do know that it's past the point of determining consumer pricing and into things that can kill me with blunt force!
[holli]: but is this really a problem 1nickt? Nobody knows how your human taxi drivers brain works either
