Subject: The twist counting script
Date: Fri, 13 Aug 2004 22:26:52 -0000

Hello! I’ve been playing with the MC4D again recently, and was
wondering how to use the twist counting Perl script written by Jay
Birkenbilt. I do have a Perl interpreter, but I’m unsure how to
feed the script my solution log files and get a twist count. Also,
am I correct in understanding that the script will count only actual
twists, and not rotations of the entire hypercube that leave it in
the same state? Any help would be appreciated.
