Just wondering: if you use a search engine that searches for a string as parts of a string (ex: searching for "poly" can return "polymorphism"), which is more efficient--searching with: '0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a e i o u', or '0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z'? (spaces are used to mark the beginning/end of a string)
I figure most results will have a vowel in it, so the second string really doesn't do much that the first doesn't.
btw, these are filenames I'm searching through, and ironically, with the first string I got 1,602 hits, while the second string only got 1,585 hits. there are many factors that could have slanted those numbers though...
also: does anybody happen to know about how many english words there are without vowels?
