OK, seems I'm coming to this party late.

But as I ponder this problem; it feels like a Fraction -- an attempt to find the lowest common denominator. So in an attempt to make the problem even easier (more simplistic) it occurred to be that the easiest (least complex) solution could probably be found by converting said stream to binary. I couldn't quire gather from your OP whether the data was strictly limited to AlphaNumeric, or not. This solved that for me. IMHO, and off the top of my point head. Only needing to deal with exactly 2 known characters should make finding a pattern near trivial, and should even reduce the record size you would need to maintain, to find that pattern.

Again, these are just my initial thoughts on the matter, and while I would normally have waited until I had produced a workable example. I thought I might throw this out there, in case I was actually on to something, and it lit a light in someoneelses head, (maybe yours) before mine. :-)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
