Can anyone show me (an example of ) how to write this program using bol phrases? Does it make sense to any of you programmers?
10 input "Number of words: ", num 20 for i = 1 to num : print "word ",i,":"; : input a$(i) : next i : print 30 rem Generate four-word phrases 30 for i = 1 to num 40 for j = 1 to num 50 for k = 1 to num 60 for l = 1 to num 70 print a$(i), " ", a$(j), " ", a$(k), " ", a$(l) 80 next l 90 next k 100 next j 110 next i
I'm aware that the combinations total somewhere in the many thousands. If I could find a program or someone who would crunch the numbers for me I could possibly get a read-out to copy and paste to a word program and replace the integers with bols or bol phrases and thus have all of the potential variations of any given composition in fours, eights, twelves, etc. I am also aware that the largest percentage of those variations would be either un-playable or un-interesting but just for fun I'd like to see how many variations of all of the thousands would be worth adopting as potential repertoire. I apologize to those of you who think this is totally geeky stuff, but just for the moment I must indulge in this one obsession of mine.
The combinations can easily add up to well beyond the thousands, and I don't know if this output is going to be of any practical use either. But it could be an interesting project if some further heuristics were applied; it may then be possible to narrow the output to playable taals.
Vikash, THAT IS SO COOL! That is precisely what I was looking for. I can't believe you did that SO FAST and posted it on an interactive web page! You're the man! I'm going to post a partial list of the first of the combinations I tried - a series of laggi'. Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you.

Vikashji, A friend of mine says it was a program similiar to this that helped piece together the human genome. Who knows, maybe I'll uncover the perfect composition. In the meantime I'm having lots of fun! Thanks again, p.s. please let me know before you decide to take it offline. Maybe I could find someone who'd be willing to host it if you need the space for something else Bill
