( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well, I'd like to solve a game like a MasterMind, or a Trivia game, or find a sort of password, looping every possible key word (not only the dictionnary words, a random one for ex.)


UPDATED:
After some brainstorming I got my solution.
Here's my script if anyone is interested:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $length = 4; # max length of the word to find my $find = "test"; # the word to find sub gen_word { my $prev = shift; my $len = shift; if ($len == 1) { for (my $idx = 65; $idx <= 122; $idx++) { my $word = $prev . chr($idx); print "word: $word\n"; if ($find eq $word) { print "found: " . $word . "\n"; exit(); } } } else { for (my $idx = 65; $idx <= 122; $idx++) { &gen_word($prev . chr($i +dx), $len - 1); } } } &gen_word("", $length); 1;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
