## Re: permutations of a 6! numerically

This is a good one...

Would be a nice coding challenge 😉   To do it nicely that is...

## Re: permutations of a 6! numerically

I built something similar to this once when I was trying to recover a lost password from an Excel spreadsheet (using ActiveX to open the spreadsheet with the new password).

It worked well, but the password was about 10 characters so I never manager to brute force it!

Will see if I can dig it up (prob not as it was at a previous employer...)

would really apreciate the help if you can find it 😄

## Re: permutations of a 6! numerically

Hm, besides that the question itself sounds a bit like: "how do i implement a brute force algorithm using LabVIEW?", i have to ask:

Is the length of the string always equal to the number of possible characters?

Hi Norbert,

i think it don't have to. 🙂

Do you think if this is the question, then we shouldn't help and he should write the code himself?? 😉

## Re: permutations of a 6! numerically

it is an attempt to break an encryption a friend has sent me. I suspect it is 6 characters long from a hint, i have tried 1 character to 5 by hand to no success, and i thought a program for six, seven etc... would be logical. i was then going to scan for a key word from the resultant decryption - but that bit i've already figured out how to do.

Six character will be fine for now, seven i hope can be made by expanding the program at a later date if needed.

its only a bit of fun, but the output will be handy for my research rather oddly!

Hi John,

why to change it later. The "challenge winner" should be able to handle whatever is needed!

## Re: permutations of a 6! numerically

i think it can be done by perhaps logical sequences,

IF A is used then character B is true for second character, if not A
