Four-letter insert? (Posted on 2004-09-06) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Can you find a word that includes the letters "CKSK" together, consecutively, in that order?

My word list had only three words and the time was about 1/2 second (five runs and their timings):

buckskin
buckskinned
buckskins
 .5976563
buckskin
buckskinned
buckskins
 .5507813
buckskin
buckskinned
buckskins
 .5
buckskin
buckskinned
buckskins
 .4921875
buckskin
buckskinned
buckskins
 .5

t = TIMER
OPEN "words.txt" FOR INPUT AS #1
DO
  LINE INPUT #1, l$
  IF INSTR(l$, "cksk") THEN PRINT l$
LOOP UNTIL EOF(1)
PRINT TIMER - t

It probably took less time to write though.
