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
