True.  And cool.  I have all 3 or 4 books...  He tries to state that he's solved the whole problem even though the key step of 
identifying and solving subproblems and setting up the problem itself correctly leads directly to many solutions.  What 
operations are allowed?  What are the constraints?  What does success look like?  These amount to the person setting up the 
problem more or less solving it by that enabled and constrained environment.

In any case, you could create a Javascript generator that generated restricted Javascript, perhaps exactly equal to the random 
CL code permutations.
