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 :-)

[Corion]: marto: How's things? I hope the kids are fine and you too!
[Corion]: Oh yay. I wonder why a very simple change in a program doesn't elicit a diff, and now I see that my diff program seems to have a bug ;)
[1nickt]: marto thanks for asking, so far so good. A pretty modern stack and decent procedures, although rather too much home-built stuff (e.g. a logging role that should tries to duplicate Log::Any).
[Corion]: No. It's just that I'm comparing the same output file twice, instead of comparing the output files of the two runs %-)
[Corion]: Lo and behold, running a program with the correct input files yields the correct (and expected) output. Yay me.
[1nickt]: Got a MacBook and am expected to develop directly on it, ironic given the recent thread about that.
[marto]: Corion, some not too serious issues with the kids, hopefully, other than that just dealing with commuting by car again in the winter, not much fun so far, and there's no real 'bad' weather yet :)
[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
