Sure, I can think of a few things, and I'm sure other people can come up with more.

First, you're doing the str(x) and str(y) conversions twice each, and it's easy to cut that in half by changing how you're doing the iteration. Probably something like this would be a little faster, but you'd have to do some speed trials to see how much:

    for i in str(x):      cx *= int(i)    for i in str(y):      cy *= int(i)

Then, an even less consequential improvement, you might possibly shave some tiny fractional seconds off with the right kind of lookup table. A dictionary might be the best:

lookup=dict()for i in "0123456789":  lookup[i]=int(i)

Or you could try a simple list, and the ASCII value of each character:
lookup=[0]*256for i in "123456789":  lookup[ord(i)]=int(i)

But then you'd need to use cx *= lookup[ord(i)] instead of just cx *= lookup[i], so again you'd have to run time trials to see which is better.

Or again, try doing everything numerically instead of converting to a string -- like
k=xwhile k>0:  digit=k%10  k-=digit  k/=10  # multiply cx by digit, etc.

String really are pretty slow sometimes compared to numeric calculations -- but I don't know if this is one of those times or not.

### Re: Script request thread

An update! I did something pretty clever, I removed the 'if str' statement and appended this at the end of the loop:
  while "0" in str(x):    x += 10 ** (len(str(x)) - str(x).find("0") - 1)

Overall it's still shorter due to the if statement being removed, in favour of this faster alternative, as well as faster because it doesn't waste time counting like 5000000...5000001...5000002, it goes 5000000...5111111...5111112

EDIT: replaced 'str(x).find("0") != -1' with 'while "0" in str(x)' as of M.I. Wright's request

### Re: Script request thread

Hey, I'm having trouble with this:
# powerz.py v1.99# danny c, 2018# checks what number x gives when you multiply its digits, then compares it against what it gives when you multiply its square's digits. if they are equal, it prints and writes to results.txt (check that file for my search progress! <3)# also special thanks to @schimatt for pretty much all of this, and helping me learn python in general c:# this was my first real python scriptwith open("powerz_results.txt", "r") as res:  x = int((list(res)[-1])) + 1  num_res = sum(1 for line in open("powerz_results.txt"))  print("last result:", x - 1,"is applicable. (#" + str(num_res) + ")")# x = 0while True:  y = x ** 2  cx = 1  cy = 1  for i in str(x):    cx *= int(i)  for i in str(y):    cy *= int(i)  if cx == cy:    num_res += 1    print(str(x) + " is applicable. (#" + str(num_res) + ", " + str(cx) + "==" + str(cy) + ")")    with open("powerz_results.txt", "a") as res:      res.write("\n" + str(x))  x += 1  while "0" in str(x):    x += 10 ** (len(str(x)) - str(x).find("0") - 1)    # print(x)

For example, with the number 53489358889, it counts by:
last result: 53489358889 is applicable. (#1)53489358890 is applicable. (#2, 0==0)53489358910534893589115348935892153489358931534893589415348935895153489358961534893589715348935898153489358991534893591005348935911053489359111

Note the false positive 53489358890, and the fact that it counts by 10's when there are no 0's. It was working fine earlier, what gives?

EDIT: Oh, I'm stupid I set it only to print after incrementing by 10s, so it's working correctly. Disregard this post.
EDIT2: Added another loop to skip everything else if 0 in x ** 2.

### Re: Script request thread

If I've generated long binary strings that equate to initial conditions for Wolfram Rule 110, is there a script out there that can convert this to an RLE or MC? Basically just translating a long binary string into a long line of on/off cells.

test it pls, might be buggy - in perl. I can rewrite it in any lang. like bash/ksh/sh, python etc:

Any chance of a version in Python?

Here you are... ... a='bbbbbbbboooooooooobobbbbbbbbbobbbbbbbb' ... Once you have the string in that form with b's and o's, it's perfectly valid RLE already. Here's a "Golly Python" implementation starting from a standard binary string like '00000000111111111101000000000100000000'. It might do slightly odd things if you have characters other than 0s and 1s in the input string, but Golly usually just tries to ignore non-standard characters so it will usually come out okay. Just copy the script below and choose File > Run Clipboard in Golly: import golly as ga=g.getstring("Enter binary string for W110 initial conditions: ")if len(a): g.new("W110") # or g.addlayer() if you don't want to overwrite the current layer's pattern g.setrule("W110") g.select([0,0,len(a),1]) g.putcells(g.parse(a.replace("0","b").replace("1","o"))) g.fit() If you want to get RLE back out again as a string in canonical form, you could add another line to save the file:  g.save("C:/Temp/W110initial.rle","rle") -- or modify Naszvadi's script, if you're just converting and storing lots of RLE strings and don't want to use Golly to simulate the patterns. dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5621 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: Script request thread Thanks folks! Apologies for my cluelessness about RLE files. In the end I combined inspiration from both of your scripts. I found that both the g.getstring() and g.getclipstr() top out at about 125,000 characters, so I had to get something working on the command line. Then I found that I needed the RLE to constrain the width of the pattern, otherwise the left edge would expand and fire gliders off to the right, which would totally muck up the cyclic tag system implementations I was hoping to simulate with this! So I fixed that and messed around a bit and this is the result: with open('initial_conditions.txt', 'r') as myfile: a=myfile.read()b = a.replace("1", "o").replace("0", "b")x = len(a)with open("W110 initial conditions.rle", "w") as text_file: text_file.write("x = 0, y = 0, rule = W110:T{},0\n".format(x)) text_file.write(b) It takes a text file of binary digits and outputs an RLE that loads into Golly correctly, loads the W110 rule and constrains the pattern width to avoid spurious gliders. Perfect! Thank you both again! As a bonus I've attached a W110 cyclic tag system pattern that this script just produced. This is a CTS taken from Wolfram's book which is defined by this rule: [{{1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1}, {1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0}}, {0, 1}]. The left side of the pattern is sparse, with just a few packs of gliders set up to modify the data which is a series of vertical gliders in the middle, with other gliders defining the CTS rule on the right side of the pattern. This simple CTS takes up 219,205 cells! Of course I also generated a W110 unit cell version that runs in GoL -- I'll put that in my thread on W110 unit cell patterns in the Patterns forum, in case anyone wants to see it. EDIT: Made a slight tweak to the script, so if you generate a W110 Cyclic Tag System initial condition in Mathematica as I did, you can save that output in a text file called 'initial_conditions_W110.txt' and run the script below in the same folder to generate an RLE for the corresponding W110 pattern. It's very quick-and-dirty and could be cleaned up a bunch, but it works. Made a different script as well that generates W110 unit cell patterns directly from the same Mathematica output, which I posted in the other thread. import rewith open('initial_conditions_W110.txt', 'r') as myfile: a=myfile.read()b = re.sub('[{,} ]', '', a)b = b.replace('\r', '')b = a.replace("1", "o").replace("0", "b")x = len(a)with open("W110 initial conditions.rle", "w") as text_file: text_file.write("x = 0, y = 0, rule = W110:T{},0\n".format(x)) text_file.write(b) Attachments W110 initial conditions CTS 1.rle (214.1 KiB) Downloaded 145 times thorsilver Posts: 13 Joined: March 31st, 2018, 9:43 pm Location: Glasgow, Scotland ### Re: Script request thread Hi!

I'm not sure, but I suspect the range function can't handle numbers larger than 2^64 for whatever reason. Replacing the for loop with a while loop works for me, and gives a dramatic speedup to boot: def isprime(m): # UGLY BLM (BOOLEAN OPERATOR, LOOP, AND MATH) SANDWICH INCOMING q = int(m ** .5) + 1 i = 2 while i < q and m % i: i += 1 return i == q or in = 3 # NUMBER YOU WANT TO TESTm = 50 # EXPONENT BEING USED# ...isprime(n ** m - (2 ** m - 1)) # basically just 3 ** 50 Obviously there are much faster primality testing algorithms out there, most of which I've probably never heard of.

To clarify -- one of the biggest reasons why you want to use something other than the naive prime-testing algorithm is that you can't possibly run a Python for loop from 2 even as far as 10^19 in practice, let alone 10^38, even if the conversion worked. 9223372036854775807, about 10^19, is I think the maximum 64-bit integer that Python can store. Depending on the Python version, you might be able to get silent conversion to long or arbitrary precision ints, or you could use Decimal or some other arbitrary-precision type. But there's really no point because 10^19 is already too big.

On my system, according to the above Ultra Scientfic Test Script, testing even a small number like 9223372036854775807 for primality will take just under 30,000 years. If you don't change "range" to "xrange" in Python 2, by the way, the script will never even get started, and it's worth looking up and understanding the reason why. Basically range builds a list of all the numbers in the range before it starts... Python 3 isn't that silly -- range in Python 3 is the same as xrange in Python 2. dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5621 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: Script request thread Can I have some pointers on computing these numbers?

Then one script could simulate bounded grids with outer space being wither all On cells or all Off cells without needing a bounded grid in Golly.

(Energetic is a rule in the rule request thread). Basically, this script takes any Hensel-notation rule and makes an Energetic rule out of it, with two states of the Hensel rule and with normal energy states. Can you make it?

Copying my response from PM It's doable, but introduces a lot more complexity in the matter / antimatter interactions. I would probably use a rule generator to create the isotropic lines for matter and antimatter in nutshell format, and then combine it with the annihilation + photon generation + photon movement which would be fixed. I really don't fancy working out how to write all the rules for matter/antimatter interaction though. Also, the photon interaction isn't complete yet as there are still asymmetries there. I'm afraid this is not a project I can take on now. If no-one else picks it up I may have a go in a month or so, but I've already got a backlog of unfinished projects so I don't want to add another to the list.

So would I. Actually, I'd like a script that actually finds a synthesis, rather than just searching for it. While I'm wishing, I'd like it to be guaranteed that the synthesis is the most efficient one possible.
