Haven't quite figured out the different list iterators in F# yet, but this does the job:

Kinda surprised of the weak turnout for this one, hopefully it picks up soon!

I had some ideas, just haven't had the time to put them into code and submit them :)

I knew that you would tarwn :)

F# is pretty awesome Denis (IMO). The forward pipe operator ("|>") is a thing of beauty, and I really like that you can define methods within the scope of another method (though I guess C# lets you do it now with lambdas). I'm still just getting my feet wet, I can't do a lot of the more complex stuff that I know how to do in C# but it feels like F# is tailored to work with a different kind of complexity anyways.

If you can deal with rather sparse documentation I'd definitely recommend giving it a shot.

VBA - just for fun - lots of code that runs but doesn't do much. :D

This challenge is over a long time, i think - but nonetheless interesting :-)

I wrote the following C-Code, as much cryptic as i can think with the
lowest use of includes ( only for output )

Works for me on Linux and Windows with switch -Wall
