The "word" is in words.txt. But a strange thing - on the other machine I'm working with now, the word is not in the output of your script.

    The last version of my script with the sort by length optimisation is broken. It starts each search into the big string in slightly the wrong places. Hence why it doesn't find as many words as it should. It could be fixed, but it will never be as quick as your approach.

    More intriguing is if your list contains 'indistinguishablenessess', & 'indistinguishableness', why doesn't yours output the latter? I didn't expend any time on it, but I couldn't see how it could miss.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
      Oh sorry, I missed the last "-ess". The longer words is not in the list. Also, I ran a bit different versions of your code on the two machines, hence the different behaviour. Anyway, it was a funny challenge :-)

[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
[stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
[LanX]: I'm not a big fan of pure make, apparently the auto generated ones are so complicated to be able to work with all possible makes
