The program I have is really hit and miss, it can run all day without finding a solution, or it can find one in 5 minutes. This solution required only 75k iterations (fast).

Having run the program all day without solutions, I'm wondering if it's been proven that all sentence beginnings have a solution. <p< I'll clean up the code a bit and post it later.


Maybe the question should be rephrased like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $str = "Do any Perlmonks know of a sentence made with five a's, one b, two c's, four d's, thirty-three e's, six f's, two g's, nine h's, ten i's, one j, three k's, two l's, three m's, twenty-one n's, sixteen o's, two p's, one q, ten r's, twenty-eight s's, twenty-five t's, three u's, three v's, ten w's, four x's, six y's, and one z?"; for my $ch ('a'..'z') { my $num = (() = $str =~ m{$ch}ig); print "$ch $num\n"; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
