In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Words that contain AEIOU, in any order, each vowel exactly once

OK;

I wrote a couple.

In order to find words that contain 'aeiou' just once do this

cat /usr/share/dict/words | perl -wnE 'print if (1==($x=()=/a/g)) and (1==($x=()=/e/g)) and (1==($x=()=/i/g)) and (1==($x=()=/o/g)) and (1==($x=()=/u/g))'

In order to find words that contain 'aeiou' once in that order, do this:

cat /usr/share/dict/words | perl -wnE 'print if /^[^aeiou]*a[^aeiou]*e[^aeiou]*i[^aeiou]*o[^aeiou]*u[^aeiou]*$/g'

To change the order to say 'aeoui', do this:


cat /usr/share/dict/words | perl -wnE 'print if /^[^aeiou]*a[^aeiou]*e[^aeiou]*o[^aeiou]*u[^aeiou]*i[^aeiou]*$/g'

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Words that contain AEIOU, in any order, each vowel exactly once

But you can run that perl code
