do you like that last century hobby of finding hidden words in strings?
with pen and paper?
do you follow the TV program COUNTDOWN?
are you training to participate in that TV program?
this script is a basic solution that finds all words between 4 and 9 characters in input string of 9 characters in less than 29 seconds.
Lots of coding refinements are possible from here, but no need to wonder whether the best match was found, run this script and find out all possible words, under the compulsory 29 seconds. Have fun.
