clientsfromhell: Me: Would you like it to be done the A way or the B way? Client: Yes.
Today I discovered something called LastCalc. It’s very early stages, but it’s a kind of pattern matching, logic programming, functional programming system. I’ve been experimenting with it for a few hours, you can fork my results here: http://www.lastcalc.com/z6S1svwW To start a new sheet, just go to http://www.lastcalc.com/ The following is my declarations list so...

clientsfromhell: Me: Did you want the font in cursive or something more simple? Client: I want it in English. Me: English is a language - cursive is a type of font we use. Did you want it to be fancy, or simple? Client: No! In English! Me: English it is then.
Euler #4 - Times
The following are timings for my solution to Euler #4, with varying number of digits: (go digit-count). user=> (time (go 1)) "Elapsed time: 0.605 msecs" 9 user=> (time (go 2)) "Elapsed time: 0.469 msecs" 9009 user=> (time (go 3)) "Elapsed time: 26.935 msecs" 906609 user=> (time (go 4)) "Elapsed time: 27.673 msecs" 99000099 user=> (time (go 5)) "Elapsed time: 329.71...
Euler #4 - Redo
Since realising my solution to Euler 4 was flawed, I started again! I worked out a method of generating value pairs in order of their product: [999 999] [999 998] [998 998] [999 997] [998 997] [999 996] [997 997] [998 996] [999 995] [997 996] etc... This way, the very first palindrome I come across, will most certainly be the largest! The following is my new code (no comments yet). The...

Realised my Euler 4 is wrong. Working on a fix!
thedistanceinsidious asked: Second thought: sorry, breezed over it and read the time for a larger number. Carry on!
thedistanceinsidious asked: Your solution to that problem is rather brilliant and remarkably fast. I'm quite impressed.

thomasbiddle: thedistanceinsidious: The smallest number evenly divisible by the numbers 1 through 20 is 232792560. There’s a cleverer way to find that than what I just went through, but for the life of me, all of the factoring knowledge that I have doesn’t help me under these circumstances. … This following is my attempt using Clojure. It’s pretty blitzing quick. ;...
I find it amazing just how many people mistake, or have been miseducated about, closures, lambdas, and anonymous functions. Simply amazing.

Project Euler: Problem 4 (Efficiently) - Clojure
Problem 4 is as such: A palindromic number reads the same both ways. The largest palindrome made from the product of two 2-digit numbers is 9009 = 91 * 99. Find the largest palindrome made from the product of two 3-digit numbers. So naturally I decided to write a function which accepts a number of digits. To get the answer to problem 4, I would simply send the number 3 to my...
I’ve made some progress with a small section of my dissertation project in the previous few hours. I found a few references for building the infix expression to s-expression translator part of my project, and implemented the operator database and definition sections. Having to read through loads of CLISP with imperative assignments :( - attempting to convert it into Clojure code, then...
