i'm pretty sure my answer for 112 is correct, but apparently it's not. anybody see anything wrong with this? it works fine for the two examples (.5->538, .9->21780).
my $max = .99; my $bouncy = 0; for (my $n=1; ; $n++) { my ($inc, $dec) = (0, 0); my @d = split //, $n; for (my $i=0; $i<@d-1; $i++) { if ($d[$i] < $d[$i+1]) { $inc++ } elsif ($d[$i] > $d[$i+1]) { $dec++ } } $bouncy++ if $inc and $dec; next if $max > $bouncy/$n; printf "n=%d: %%%f\n", $n, $bouncy/$n; last; }

    [choroba]: You definitely can, but the How is complex. It probably depends on the WM (but you can probably tweak the underlying X layer to provide it)
    [choroba]: Google says that on Ubuntu, you can just use Ctrl+Shift instead of Alt
    [choroba]: that is, ctrl+shift+U followed by the hex code of the character
