This output lines are just to convince you that the program is running. The first number is the number of iterations. Next is the score of the best attempt so far followed by the letters whose count is not right. Score of 5 means the whole sentence is 'off by 5'. Every $RESET iterations the best number is reset so you can see more work being done.

I don't know if eventually a sentence will resolve. I tend to think some sentences don't have a solution. I've run the program for many millions of iterations over many hours and not found an answer. Even with a run this long I'm sure only a small fraction of possibilities were tried. I've also had it finish in five minutes.

I think I need to run the same sentence many times to see if there is any consistancy about how many iterations it takes.
