Subject: Re: Need to generate random words/letter configurations in SAS
Hello Richard and All,
out of sheer curiosity, does anyone has a dictionary of English language
available so that it can be used in SAS to check how many of these 5000
words are not gibberish? I remember one old article that stated that if one
can get a monkey to writinig for infinite time, it can eventually
write "Sound and Fury". So, I'm just wondering how many iterations it will
actually take to produce one meaningful word (regardless of its length).
Might also be interesting for Paul, I believe...
