Craig,
The corrected version of your code I gave you in my previous email is
very slow indeed. You will find below a functional code that is much faster.
In[1]:=
f[x_] := Boole[DigitCount[x, 10, 3] > 0]
g[x_] := Sum[f[i], {i, x}]/x
Plot[Evaluate[g[x]], {x, 1, 100}];
In[4]:=
Timing[Plot[Evaluate[g[x]], {x, 1, 100}]; ]
Out[4]=
{0.609 Second,Null}
In[5]:=
Timing[Plot[Evaluate[g[x]], {x, 1, 1000}]; ]
Out[5]=
{23.282 Second,Null}
In[23]:=
Timing[rng = Range[1, 100];
ListPlot[Rest[FoldList[Plus, 0,
(Boole[DigitCount[#1, 10, 3] > 0] & ) /@ rng]]/
rng]; ]
Out[23]=
{0.015 Second,Null}
In[24]:=
Timing[rng = Range[1, 1000];
ListPlot[Rest[FoldList[Plus, 0,
(Boole[DigitCount[#1, 10, 3] > 0] & ) /@ rng]]/
rng]; ]
Out[24]=
{0.078 Second,Null}
In[25]:=
Timing[rng = Range[1, 10000];
ListPlot[Rest[FoldList[Plus, 0,
(Boole[DigitCount[#1, 10, 3] > 0] & ) /@ rng]]/
rng]; ]
Out[25]=
{1.141 Second,Null}
In[26]:=
Timing[rng = Range[1, 100000];
ListPlot[Rest[FoldList[Plus, 0,
(Boole[DigitCount[#1, 10, 3] > 0] & ) /@ rng]]/
rng]; ]
Out[26]=
{7.859 Second,Null}
