in thread Reverse engineering a formula...

Not every number necessarily needs to be part of the formula (obviously its 2 or more numbers in some combination of addition and/or subtraction). Those two numbers could simply not be part of the formula.

    As I said before: Not enough information...

    It seems as if your formular is something like this (untested code of course):
    my @sign=( .... ); # Some combination of -1, 0 1 my @sum= map { $sign[$i] * $VAR1[$i] } (0..$#VAR1); print eval join ' + ', @sum;
    Now you "only" need to get the correct combination of -1, 0 and 1 for @sign, which is a "simple" combinational task but will be very lengthy...
