### Re: Have you written a program to write a program?

I've done this at least once. Python is great at number-crunching and the like, but not graphics whereas Blitz Basic/3D is essentially the opposite. So, one time, I wrote a Python program that generated a specified number of for-loops in Blitz Basic/3D code.

### Re: Problem 97

**JMW1994**, one would think that having been on this forum for several months and posting 28 other times, you should know not to post any results or code, whole or fragmented. In addition, you should also know that this is a public forum. Hence, can you remove your results?

### Re: What is the best language for Project Euler?

What many people have done is make a new thread for that language and ask for it to be added.mwm wrote:Which leads to the question - how do I get a language added to the list of possible languages?

1. I have no issue with the first sentence of 033 and I'll bet that most other people don't either. Can you clarify what makes it hard for you to understand? 2.

### Re: Number of Arrangements in a Grid

Perhaps it would be easier still to just construct the boundary? Implementing such an enumeration tactic for that method would probably involve recursive functions... Wait a minute...this is (kinda, maybe) easier than I thought. There can only be one boundary, which can be visualized as walls betwee...

Hey ! I have implemented the Sieve of Eratosthenes logarithm but the actual creation of the list takes ages for me since I kind of bruteforced the non brute force way lol.

A number ABC...XYZ with n digits (0< n <=9) has n ! permutations (if each digit is distinct). For each place, there is a choice among n digits to fill it. Thus, out of n ! permutations, each place is filled by a specific digit n !/ n (or ( n -1)! ) times. Consider the sum of the rightmost digit of e...

Oh nuts! How else do I determine who I can fairly discuss a problem solution with? Honor system? Yeah, pretty much. However, you can also look at the top posters on this forum. The ones with the highest post counts tend to have solved most, if not all of them. Also, those on the problem development...

### Re: Zeno's Paradoxes and Discrete Space/Time

I'd have to imagine that as t approaches 2, you will be flipping the switch with such a high frequency that the light will appear to be on. However, since this frequency will approach infinity, it could also mean you are changing the lamp's state faster than electrons can move through the switch, w...

### Re: SCRIPT TO CHECK IF A NUMBER IS PRIME

Personally, I've always found it more efficient and easier to increment i and exit the (while) loop when i*i > n... Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that is faster. If you write "i <= sqrt(n)", then your complier will probably change the code so, that sqrt(n) is only calculated once, as n...
