Perl: the Markov chain saw

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

That dataset is an excellent test sample. Thankyou.

BTW. CSV (Comma Seperated Values) data normally actually has commas separating the values :). Using white space to separate values that themselves contain whitespace gave me pause for thought. (I wonder how the thou-shalt-not-parse-csv-yourself brigade would handle that?)

For my purposes, I just ignored the middle column. I tacked the data on the end of my test script and it found and output all possible paths from all possible starting points in 0.04 seconds. Including remembering which starting point generated the longest path, which turned out to be "2,4,4-Trimethyl-1-pentanol":

c:\test>904729-3 >nul Took 0.04846 2,4,4-Trimethyl-1-pentanol ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanal ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanoate ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethylpent-2-enoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-hydroxypentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-oxopentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-oxopentanoate ->2,2-Dimethyl-3-pentanone ->1-Hydroxy-4,4-dimethylpentan-3-one ->4,4-Dimethyl-3-oxopentanal 2,4,4-Trimethyl-1-pentanol ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanal ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanoate ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethylpent-2-enoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-hydroxypentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-oxopentanoyl-CoA ->Pivalyl-CoA 2,4,4-Trimethyl-1-pentanol ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanal ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanoate ->2,4,4-Trimethylpentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethylpent-2-enoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-hydroxypentanoyl-CoA ->2,4,4-Trimethyl-3-oxopentanoyl-CoA ->Propanoyl-CoA

The script excluding most of the data:

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.
