I wouldn't waste time trying to emulate the browser for this mission, just copy/paste then paste the answer in...there is time.

Any tips for what exactly those "strategically placed" words might be about? I have similar issues with my code where anywhere from 4-6 words do not return matches after going through my algorithm. I tried to look for a pattern in regards to repeating characters, string length, etc. with no luck.

Hi,

I'm trying to program this in Java. I thought my code was complete, but I'm getting an exception and I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. Could someone please take a look at it? I'm guessing it's something really stupid.

Thanks in advance.

Hey, I'm frustrated dudes :( I only recently started to study the browser languages, spending most of my time writing this program in Javascript. I have begun writing a program that i can copy and paste the output from the site into an input form where, using the spaces, it defines ten variables. I am trying to use a "while" conditional statement to sort the characters of the given scrambles into arrays of different lengths based upon the length of the strings themselves. I have recently discovered that after executing a "while" conditional, everything after the appending, closing, curly-bracket gets put on the wayside... Tips as to how to solve this problem in an easier manner? I am largely relying on using a certain java command that splits the string into its characters using increasing increments and increasing variables defining each of the array's elements. Plz help meh?? :(((

Two things...

1. Javascript and Java are not the same thing. In fact, they are completely unrelated.

2. Get to know the tools that are available to you to answer your own questions. Try firebug extension in firefox and developer tools in chrome. Highly recommend you keep your distance from IE for writing javascript.

Hope that helps. There are dozens of tips on how to write the program in this post. Try reading through those for more ideas.

Well, if you people are having trouble, it took me about 40 minutes to make a program to do it in excel. :D

The most inefficient way possible.

Spoiler below. Please only view if you've already completed or plan to devise a different method.
www.dontPostSpoiler.com

Does that count as a spoiler? I thought people would be interested in how I did it...

If that's not allowed, sorry.

It's around 95% effective. Because there can be false positives caused by repeated letters.


....I really should get round to learning how to do proper programming...

It's about time I got round to starting these missions, and I'm almost done with this one. It is taking me longer than 40 mins because i keep changing my mind about things lol

I kept an 'error' though because comparing less strings takes less time, I didnt want to re arrange everthing

I did it! :) Its simple and fast in visual basic, but i losed about one hour becouse i didnt read carefully what is actually the goal of this mission.
So, if anyone has much trouble, and cant find error in program, maybe u missunderstood mission, read again.
Learning from errors..
