If you want a clue about what I expect, consider this. We have seen that the well ordered suite can be obtained by means of perm() after a certain amount of iterations. This is because permutations are cyclic. Now each permutation then has a certain cyclic value. I can imagine that a particular means of obtaining "n012.." could make use of this cyclic value and thus the rule might look like:

For any permutations x and y, if x has a cyclic value of (max cyclic value for the base) and y (medium cyclic value for the base) then "n012.." can be obtained by the following composition of perm()...

But this is just imagination about what I would like to know.

 [Lotus1]: at least ticks don't fly [1nickt]: We have a new tick in cenral New Jersey this year. The Lone Star tick -- no Lyme, but will give you an allergy to red meat! [Your Mother]: "Tick Twister." [1nickt]: My sister lives in the Sydney suburbs (carved out of the bush) and they have the Paralysis tick -- leavs you quadriplegic! [perldigious]: Hmm, thanks Lotus1... perldigious scribbles note to buy lots of opossums as "pets" in the future to hang around outside his property. :-P [1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours. [1nickt]: tweesers work just fine [hippo]: Hope everyone else is enjoying their lunch too. [1nickt]: However, note that it takes between 2 and 4 hours for a tick to be able to start transmitting bacteria. So even if it has burrowed in and started eating, if you get it soon you should be OK. [perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
