Re: VMs: VBScript for finding repeating strings
Just some quick comments on your VBScript string autocorrelation test.
(1) To my eyes, what appears to be happening is that your 12-unit cut-off
string match is giving dense ("black triangle") matches in areas where
there are a good number of longer-than-12-unit matches.
(2) These long matches seem to be heavy in the kind of
[qo-ch/sh/k/t-e/ee/eee/eo-dy] "structured words" we've all come to know and
love so much.
(3) The length of the match is calculated in EVA units, not in glyph units.
(4) You might consider replacing both probable glyphs (like "cfh", "ch",
"sh", "ee", etc) and probable verbose pairs (like "qo", "dy") with non-EVA
letters (like "A", "B", "C", ...), and reducing your cut-off length, to see
what other patterns you notice. This might reduce your reliance on
"qoteedy" matches, and hence help show up other kinds of matches within the
Alternatively, you might try adapting your code to compensate for matches
longer than your cut-off (which I predict are giving you your black
