Re: eval assign

Sorry. I cannot understand WHY it works. if we have variable "x" at main level, then in the sub level "x" is undefined and EVAL("x") should not work, is it? To fix it I supposed to make "x" global, am I? Here some test code that shows results inconsistent with my understanding (LB 3.10) See differen...

Re: Crypt-It

Looks like it needs a line

Code: Select all

CryptMessage$=CryptMessageContents$ 
after line 189

Code: Select all

#1.ClipboardIn "!Line 1 ClipboardContents$"

Re: Hangman

Played a few rounds of Hangman (Geography set) - me and kid (age 13).
Interesting - we guess words we have no slightest idea about, like "Montpellier".
(just googled it to *have* idea)
I guess that means we heard it somewhere before, but without meaning.

Re: Crypt-It

Something is wrong with last version.
Then I try to decrypt, letters "v" appears in wrong places - and even between letters.
And substituted letters appear not at all places but only from start.

Re: Crypt-It

Ah. But that's just another problem. So instead of looking for 6-letter words I discard all spaces and INSTR decoded variants with all words from dictionary (set for len()>3 to remove short jitter) One with more words occurring likely wins. (target line has 5 hits) Indeed I saw the message. It would...

Re: Crypt-It

Wow. You really puzzled me. First, checking all numeric keys did not made a word. (I checked against UNIXDICT - literally not a word!) I see there is actually not 1000 but 26! (factorial, 4.03291461 × 10^26) possible transpositions, so you may just scramble it by hand, not by code. Ok then. Next, I ...

Re: Crypt-It

How to use scratch pad Run the program. Enter (paste) the message to decode. Press "Decrypt" button. Second row of buttons will turn BOLD ("free" letters - they will fade one-by-one as you use them), under it source (cipher) text will be displayed. Pick a letter from cipher text. Let it be "X". Clic...
