I used Heap's algorithm to generate all permutations - then it took 256 seconds.
Including the condition that
Code:
MOD(13*b*i + g*h*c,c*i)=0
after having selected 5 numbers reduced the timing to 30 seconds.

I've decided to change my RPL program to handle c for other values than 1, since it was just a matter of including another loop and do the necessary modifications. Perhaps the most difficult one would be determining the new the MOD condition, but I shamelessly used yours above (Thanks! :-). I've obtained 34 solutions (136/4) as expected, in 49.47 seconds on the emulator (Debug4x, Emu-50g, WinXP, Intel Core Duo CPU @ 1.86 GHz) -- 23 minutes and 31.9 seconds on the physical HP 50g. Ok, each solution should be processed to generate three additional ones, but that would take irrelevant time so I won't mind doing it.

I think this is correct, but I haven't checked it yet.
