in reply to Golf: Movie style code cracker.

(+10 for any solution that runs more than 2.5 minutes (average time for a 'tense' movie scene (guestimate:)), for a 10 digit code.)

Uh. Two and a half minutes for guessing a 10 digit code? That's a challenge for the book writer. If I had a television, I would start zapping. In the cinema, I'd leave for the toilet, and get a beer. Anyways, 86 strokes.

    I like your 110 stroke version. Though I'd have to penalise for never producing a '9' in the final code.

    However, on my system at least, you could trade the extra stroke of rand 10 for ommitting the final print$/ as the system supplies one when the program ends.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
