in reply to Puzzle: What is the largest integer whose digits are all different (and do not include 0) that is divisible by each of its individual digits?
Many good replies above, but figured I'd
try it for myself with the help of CPAN.
Looks like it runs plenty fast enough with
brute force alone. Fun.
