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

Looks like we may need benchmark for this game. Here is the answer, I'll post the complete code in 24 hours so as not to spoil all the fun. It's ~ 30 average lines long and runs under strict. I have included the begining and end. My woodwork teacher used to say look after the edges and the middle will look after itself..... BTW Please enter perlmonks for the prize and donate it to the offering plate when we win!

Hint:

There is only one solution,

brute force is not the key

With code in evolution,

consider the holy three

 

tachyon

one 435 three 17955 six 820 ten 153 Elapsed 0 seconds #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $time = time(); my %tri; # make hash of tiangular numbers 5 digits or less map{$tri{.5*$_*($_+1)}=1}1..446; ... ... # prove we are right! print "one $o$n$e " if defined $tri{"$o$n$e"}; print "three $t$h$r$e$e " if defined $tri{"$t$h$r$e$e"}; print "six $s$i$x " if defined $tri{"$s$i$x"}; print "ten $t$e$n\n" if defined $tri{"$t$e$n"}; $time = time()-$time; print "Elapsed $time seconds\n";

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
