This corrects the Dispatch table from my earlier solution (it wasn't general enough). It also uses Sow, Reap, and Scan rather than Position, Part, and Accumulate. It's not as fast as the other solution, but it's interesting. Quit piesimo3[n_, m_, r_] := Module[{d = Dispatch@Thread[DeleteCases[Range[0, 9], m] -> -1], count = 1}, First@Last@ Reap@Scan[(Length@# == r && First@# == m && Sow@count; count += Length@#) &, Split[RealDigits[Pi - 3, 10, n][[1]] /. d]] ] Timing@piesimo3[10^7, 9, 7] {38.6643, {1722776, 3389380, 4313727, 5466169}} Bobby On Fri, 10 Jun 2011 05:38:05 -0500, Guillermo Sanchez <guillermo.sanchez at hotmail.com> wrote: > Dear Group > > I have developed this function > > piesimo[n_, m_, r_] := Module[{a}, a = Split[RealDigits[Pi - 3, 10, n] > [[1]]]; Part[Accumulate[Length /@ a], Flatten[Position[a, Table[m, > {r}]]] - 1] + 1] > > n is the digits of Pi, after 3, where to search a sequence of m digit > r times consecutives. > For instance: > > piesimo[10^7, 9, 7] > > Gives that the sequence 9999999 happens in positions: > > {1722776, 3389380, 4313727, 5466169} > > I know that in this group I will find faster methods.
