Interesting (I missed this post for those days, sorry). By chance did you document the results / routines somewhere? Like in the software library here on the forum?

Anyway, while I'm trying to slowly solve the puzzle that I proposed about list processing here I reached the challenge 6. I'm super slow due to trivial mistakes that I do not discover quickly. Like "value 'var' STO-" instead of "'var' value STO-" (somehow I always mess with non commutative STO operations).

Aside from the fact that the code of DavidM does not include a challenge 6 solver, so I will have to compare against myself ( :sad: ) , I have two problems.

First problem is about inserting a list in a list.

Quote:Side question: I am not able to put a list in a list

I mean {1 2 3} {1 2 3} + returns {1 2 3 1 2 3}. What is the operation to return {1 2 3 {1 2 3} } ?

Second problem (it is a nice by product problem, I'm happy when I find those). To test the challenge 6 code, I use a program to generate a random list of N integers between minValue and maxValue (both extremes included). Now if minValue is 1 and maxValue is 10, given 100 elements, what is the probability of getting a valid list for the challenge 6? (challenge 6: verify that in a list of 100+ positive integers, every integer appears a number of times equal to its value)

I'll attack it as soon as I get enough sleep, I guess it is like "how can I partition a number".

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
