DECLARE SUB permute (a\$)
CLS
DEFDBL A-Z
a\$ = "1234567890": h\$ = a\$
PRINT " vain", " float", " indolent"
DO
IF INSTR(a\$, "0") > 3 THEN
v = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 1, 1))
f = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 2, 1))
i = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 3, 1))
a = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 4, 1))
n = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 5, 1))
l = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 6, 1))
o = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 7, 1))
t = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 8, 1))
d = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 9, 1))
e = VAL(MID\$(a\$, 10, 1))
END IF
vain = 1000 * v + 100 * a + 10 * i + n
float = 10000 * f + 1000 * l + 100 * o + 10 * a + t
indolent = 10000000 * i + 1000000 * n + 100000 * d + 10000 * o + 1000 * l + 100 * e + 10 * n + t
IF vain * float = indolent THEN PRINT vain, float, indolent
permute a\$
LOOP UNTIL a\$ = h\$

finds
