9 random digits (Posted on 2003-05-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Suppose you want to make a random 9 digit number, using every number from 1 to 9 exactly once. You have a process called random(top) that gives a random number up to top (if top was 5, it would give random numbers from 1 to 5)

a) How could you do this?

b) If top couldn't be more than 9, how could you do this using random(top) only 9 times (or less)?

Somebody had to write the library function, didn't they?
(and, logically speaking, the statemtent places the library routine writer not worth his or her salt.)
