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.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # # See http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=503317, Oct 27 2005 # Jim Mahoney (mahoney@marlboro.edu) # use strict; use warnings; use Algorithm::FastPermute qw(permute); use Math::Combinatorics qw(); my $debug = 0; my $largest = 0; my @solutions; my $start_time = time(); print " What is the largest integer whose digits are all different (and do not include 0) that is divisible by each of its individual di +gits? Working... "; for my $n (reverse 1..9){ my $c = Math::Combinatorics->new( count=>$n, data=>[1..9] ); while (my @array = $c->next_combination){ permute { remember(@array) if is_solution(@array) } @array; } } @solutions = sort @solutions; print " Done in " . (time()-$start_time) . " seconds. Total number of solutions found is " . scalar(@solutions) . ". Largest is " . $solutions[-1] . ". "; sub remember { my @digits = @_; push @solutions, join('',@digits); } sub is_solution { my @digits = @_; my $number = 0+join('',@digits); for my $digit (@digits){ return 0 if $number % $digit != 0; } return 1; } __END__ $ ./n_digits_divide.pl What is the largest integer whose digits are all different (and do not include 0) that is divisible by each of its individual di +gits? Working... Done in 6 seconds. Total number of solutions found = 548. Largest found was 9867312.
