Solutions are allowed (but not required) to parse and interpret the problem text, but should remain flexible and should state what changes to the problem text are allowed. Flexibility and ease of expression are valued.

Examples may be be split into "setup", "problem statement", and "output" sections where the ease and naturalness of stating the problem and getting an answer, as well as the ease and flexibility of modifying the problem are the primary concerns.

Example output should be shown here, as well as any comments on the examples flexibility.

;The problem Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, and Smith live on different floors of an apartment house that contains only five floors.

• Baker does not live on the top floor.
• Cooper does not live on the bottom floor.
• Fletcher does not live on either the top or the bottom floor.
• Miller lives on a higher floor than does Cooper.
• Smith does not live on a floor adjacent to Fletcher's.
• Fletcher does not live on a floor adjacent to Cooper's.

''Where does everyone live?''

Uses an enum type People to attempt to be naturally reading. Problem is easily changed by altering subtype Floor, type people and the somewhat naturally reading constraints in the Constrained function. If for example you change the floor range to 1..6 and add Superman to people, all possible solutions will be printed.

```with Ada.Text_IO; use Ada.Text_IO;
procedure Dinesman is
subtype Floor is Positive range 1 .. 5;
type People is (Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Smith);
type Floors is array (People'Range) of Floor;
type PtFloors is access all Floors;

function Constrained (f : PtFloors) return Boolean is begin
if f (Baker) /= Floor'Last and
f (Cooper) /= Floor'First and
Floor'First < f (Fletcher) and f (Fletcher) < Floor'Last and
f (Miller) > f (Cooper) and
abs (f (Smith) - f (Fletcher)) /= 1 and
abs (f (Fletcher) - f (Cooper)) /= 1
then return True; end if;
return False;
end Constrained;

procedure Solve (list : PtFloors; n : Natural) is
procedure Swap (I : People; J : Natural) is
temp : constant Floor := list (People'Val (J));
begin list (People'Val (J)) := list (I); list (I) := temp;
end Swap;
begin
if n = 1 then
if Constrained (list) then
for p in People'Range loop
Put_Line (p'Img & " on floor " & list (p)'Img);
end loop;
end if;
return;
end if;
for i in People'First .. People'Val (n - 1) loop
Solve (list, n - 1);
if n mod 2 = 1 then Swap (People'First, n - 1);
else Swap (i, n - 1); end if;
end loop;
end Solve;

thefloors : aliased Floors;
begin
for person in People'Range loop
thefloors (person) := People'Pos (person) + Floor'First;
end loop;
Solve (thefloors'Access, Floors'Length);
end Dinesman;

## ALGOL 68

Algol 68 allows structures containing procedures to have a different procedure for each instance (similar to making each instance a separate derived class in OO languages). This allows for easy specification of the constraints. The constraints for each person could be changed by providing a different PROC(INT)BOOL in the initialisation of the inhabitants. Changing the number of inhabitants would require adding or removing loops from the solution finding code.

```# attempt to solve the dinesman Multiple Dwelling problem #

# SETUP #

# special floor values #
INT    top floor    = 4;
INT    bottom floor = 0;

# mode to specify the persons floor constraint #
MODE PERSON = STRUCT( STRING name, REF INT floor, PROC( INT )BOOL ok );

# yields TRUE if the floor of the specified person is OK, FALSE otherwise #
OP OK = ( PERSON p )BOOL: ( ok OF p )( floor OF p );

# yields TRUE if floor is adjacent to other persons floor, FALSE otherwise #
PROC adjacent = ( INT floor, other persons floor )BOOL: floor >= ( other persons floor - 1 ) AND floor <= ( other persons floor + 1 );

# displays the floor of an occupant #
PROC print floor = ( PERSON occupant )VOID: print( ( whole( floor OF occupant, -1 ), " ", name OF occupant, newline ) );

# PROBLEM STATEMENT #

# the inhabitants with their floor and constraints #
PERSON baker    = ( "Baker",    LOC INT := 0, ( INT floor )BOOL: floor /= top floor );
PERSON cooper   = ( "Cooper",   LOC INT := 0, ( INT floor )BOOL: floor /= bottom floor );
PERSON fletcher = ( "Fletcher", LOC INT := 0, ( INT floor )BOOL: floor /= top floor AND floor /= bottom floor
AND NOT adjacent( floor, floor OF cooper ) );
PERSON miller   = ( "Miller",   LOC INT := 0, ( INT floor )BOOL: floor > floor OF cooper );
PERSON smith    = ( "Smith",    LOC INT := 0, ( INT floor )BOOL: NOT adjacent( floor, floor OF fletcher ) );

# SOLUTION #

# "brute force" solution - we run through the possible 5^5 configurations          #
# we cold optimise this by e.g. restricting f to bottom floor + 1 TO top floor - 1 #
# at the cost of reducing the flexibility of the constraints                       #
# alternatively, we could add minimum and maximum allowed floors to the PERSON     #
# STRUCT and loop through these instead of bottom floor TO top floor               #

FOR b FROM bottom floor TO top floor DO
floor OF baker := b;
FOR c FROM bottom floor TO top floor DO
IF b /= c THEN
floor OF cooper := c;
FOR f FROM bottom floor TO top floor DO
IF b /= f AND c /= f THEN
floor OF fletcher := f;
FOR m FROM bottom floor TO top floor DO
IF b /= m AND c /= m AND f /= m THEN
floor OF miller   := m;
FOR s FROM bottom floor TO top floor DO
IF b /= s AND c /= s AND f /= s AND m /= s THEN
floor OF smith    := s;

## Bracmat

The rules constitute the body of the 'constraints' function. Each statement of the problem is translated into a pattern. Patterns are the rhs of the ':' operator. Constraints can be added or deleted as you like. If the problem is underspecified, for example by deleting one or more patterns, all solutions are output, because the line following the output statement forces Bracmat to backtrack. Patterns are read as follows: the '~' means negation, a '?' is a wildcard that can span zero or more floors, a '|' means alternation. If in a pattern there is no wildcard to the left of a person's name, the pattern states that the person must live in the bottom floor. If in a pattern there is no wildcard to the right of a person's name, the pattern states that the person must live in the top floor. If in a pattern name A is left of name B, the pattern states that person A is living in a lower floor than person B. Patterns can be alternated with the '|' (OR) operator. The match operator ':', when standing between two patterns, functions as an AND operation, because both sides must match the subject argument 'arg'. The names of the people can be changed to anything, except empty strings. Bracmat supports UTF-8 encoded Unicode characters, but falls back to ISO 8859-1 if a string cannot be parsed as UTF-8. If a name contains characters that can be misinterpreted as operators, such as '.' or ' ', the name must be enclosed in double quotes. If there are no reserved characters in a name, double quotes are optional.

```(   Baker Cooper Fletcher Miller Smith:?people
& ( constraints
=
.   !arg
: ~(? Baker)
: ~(Cooper ?)
: ~(Fletcher ?|? Fletcher)
: ? Cooper ? Miller ?
: ~(? Smith Fletcher ?|? Fletcher Smith ?)

& ( solution

.   !arg:(?floors.?persons)
& (   !persons:
& constraints\$!floors
& out\$("Inhabitants, from bottom to top:" !floors)
& ~     { The ~ always fails on evaluation. Here, failure forces Bracmat to backtrack and find all solutions, not just the first one. }

%?`person
(?Z&solution\$(!floors !person.!A !Z))
)
)
& solution\$(.!people)
|        { After outputting all solutions, the lhs of the | operator fails. The rhs of the | operator, here an empty string, is the final result. }
);

C, being its compiled self, is not terribly flexible in dynamically changing runtime code content. Parsing some external problem specification would be one way, but for a small problem, it might as well just recompile with conditions hard coded. For this program, to change conditions, one needs to edit content between BEGIN and END of problem specific setup. Those could even be setup in an external file and gets `#include`d if need be.

## C#

### Constraints as functions solution

Usage of the DinesmanSolver is very simple. Just feed it a bunch of constraints in the form of functions. (It could also be one function with a bunch of 'and' clauses)
Each tenant is considered an integer from 0 to count.

For each solution, it will output an array of integers that represent the tenants ordered by floor number, from the bottom floor to the top.

```public class Program
{
public static void Main()
{
const int count = 5;
const int Baker = 0, Cooper = 1, Fletcher = 2, Miller = 3, Smith = 4;
string[] names = { nameof(Baker), nameof(Cooper), nameof(Fletcher), nameof(Miller), nameof(Smith) };

Func<int[], bool>[] constraints = {
floorOf => floorOf[Baker] != count-1,
floorOf => floorOf[Cooper] != 0,
floorOf => floorOf[Fletcher] != count-1 && floorOf[Fletcher] != 0,
floorOf => floorOf[Miller] > floorOf[Cooper],
floorOf => Math.Abs(floorOf[Smith] - floorOf[Fletcher]) > 1,
floorOf => Math.Abs(floorOf[Fletcher] - floorOf[Cooper]) > 1,
};

var solver = new DinesmanSolver();
foreach (var tenants in solver.Solve(count, constraints)) {
Console.WriteLine(string.Join(" ", tenants.Select(t => names[t])));
}
}
}

public class DinesmanSolver
{
public IEnumerable<int[]> Solve(int count, params Func<int[], bool>[] constraints) {
foreach (int[] floorOf in Permutations(count)) {
if (constraints.All(c => c(floorOf))) {
yield return Enumerable.Range(0, count).OrderBy(i => floorOf[i]).ToArray();
}
}
}

static IEnumerable<int[]> Permutations(int length) {
if (length == 0) {
yield return new int[0];
yield break;
}
bool forwards = false;
foreach (var permutation in Permutations(length - 1)) {
for (int i = 0; i < length; i++) {
yield return permutation.InsertAt(forwards ? i : length - i - 1, length - 1).ToArray();
}
forwards = !forwards;
}
}
}

static class Extensions
{
public static IEnumerable<T> InsertAt<T>(this IEnumerable<T> source, int position, T newElement) {
if (source == null) throw new ArgumentNullException(nameof(source));
if (position < 0) throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException(nameof(position));
return InsertAtIterator(source, position, newElement);
}

private static IEnumerable<T> InsertAtIterator<T>(IEnumerable<T> source, int position, T newElement) {
int index = 0;
foreach (T element in source) {
if (index == position) yield return newElement;
yield return element;
index++;
}
if (index < position) throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException(nameof(position));
if (index == position) yield return newElement;
}

### Shorter Linq solution

This challenge is badly stated. It is trivial to state/add any variant as a where clause (and to the enum) in the Linq query. Need more information in order to automatically parse such statements and there is no specification of this in the challenge. {{works with|C sharp|C#|7}}

```using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using static System.Linq.Enumerable;

static class Program
{
enum Tenants { Baker = 0, Cooper = 1, Fletcher = 2, Miller = 3, Smith = 4 };

static void Main()
{
var count = Enum.GetNames(typeof(Tenants)).Length;
var top = count - 1;

var solve =
from f in Range(0, count).Permutations()
let floors = f.ToArray()
where floors[(int)Tenants.Baker] != top //r1
where floors[(int)Tenants.Cooper] != 0 //r2
where floors[(int)Tenants.Fletcher] != top && floors[(int)Tenants.Fletcher] != 0 //r3
where floors[(int)Tenants.Miller] > floors[(int)Tenants.Cooper] //r4
where Math.Abs(floors[(int)Tenants.Smith] - floors[(int)Tenants.Fletcher]) !=1 //r5
where Math.Abs(floors[(int)Tenants.Fletcher] - floors[(int)Tenants.Cooper]) !=1 //r6
select floors;
var solved = solve.First();
var output = Range(0,count).OrderBy(i=>solved[i]).Select(f => ((Tenants)f).ToString());
Console.WriteLine(String.Join(" ", output));
}

public static IEnumerable<IEnumerable<T>> Permutations<T>(this IEnumerable<T> values)
{
if (values.Count() == 1)
return values.ToSingleton();

return values.SelectMany(v => Permutations(values.Except(v.ToSingleton())), (v, p) => p.Prepend(v));
}

public static IEnumerable<T> ToSingleton<T>(this T item) { yield return item; }
}
```

Output:

```Smith Cooper Baker Fletcher Miller

```

## Clojure

This solution uses the contributed package ''clojure.core.logic'', a miniKanren-based logic solver (and contributed ''clojure.tools.macro'' as well). The "setup" part of this code defines relational functions (or constraints) for testing "immediately above", "higher", and "on nonadjacent floors". These are used (along with the package's "permuteo" constraint) to define a constraint ''dinesmano'' which searches for all the resident orders that satisfy the criteria. The criteria are listed in one-to-one correspondence with the problem statement. The problem statement could be changed to any mixture of these constraint types, and additional constraint functions could be defined as necessary. The final part of the code searches for all solutions and prints them out.

```(ns rosettacode.dinesman
(:use [clojure.core.logic]
[clojure.tools.macro :as macro]))

; whether x is immediately above (left of) y in list s; uses pattern matching on s
(defne aboveo [x y s]
([_ _ (x y . ?rest)])
([_ _ [_ . ?rest]] (aboveo x y ?rest)))

; whether x is on a higher floor than y
(defne highero [x y s]
([_ _ (x . ?rest)] (membero y ?rest))
([_ _ (_ . ?rest)] (highero x y ?rest)))

; whether x and y are on nonadjacent floors
(conda
((aboveo x y s) fail)
((aboveo y x s) fail)
(succeed)))

(defn dinesmano [rs]
(macro/symbol-macrolet [_ (lvar)]
(all
(permuteo ['Baker 'Cooper 'Fletcher 'Miller 'Smith] rs)
(aboveo _ 'Baker rs) ;someone lives above Baker
(aboveo 'Cooper _ rs) ;Cooper lives above someone
(aboveo 'Fletcher _ rs)
(aboveo _ 'Fletcher rs)
(highero 'Miller 'Cooper rs)

(let [solns (run* [q] (dinesmano q))]
(println "solution count:" (count solns))
(println "solution(s) highest to lowest floor:")
(doseq [soln solns] (println " " soln)))

```

{{out}}

```solution count: 1
solution(s) highest to lowest floor:
(Miller Fletcher Baker Cooper Smith)
```

## Crystal

{{trans|Ruby}} This example modifies the Enumerable(T) mixin and adds a method index! that requires each index not to be nil.

```module Enumerable(T)
def index!(element)
index(element).not_nil!
end
end

residents = [:Baker, :Cooper, :Fletcher, :Miller, :Smith]

predicates = [
->(p : Array(Symbol)){ :Baker != p.last },
->(p : Array(Symbol)){ :Cooper != p.first },
->(p : Array(Symbol)){ :Fletcher != p.first && :Fletcher != p.last },
->(p : Array(Symbol)){ p.index!(:Miller) > p.index!(:Cooper) },
->(p : Array(Symbol)){ (p.index!(:Smith) - p.index!(:Fletcher)).abs != 1 },
->(p : Array(Symbol)){ (p.index!(:Cooper) - p.index!(:Fletcher)).abs != 1}
]

puts residents.permutations.find { |p| predicates.all? &.call p }
```

## D

{{incorrect|D|

The output is incorrect:

it has Fletcher on the bottom floor,

Baker on the top,

}}

This code uses the second lazy permutations function of '''[[Permutations#Lazy_version]]'''.

As for flexibility: the solve code works with an arbitrary number of people and predicates.

```import std.stdio, std.math, std.algorithm, std.traits, permutations2;

void main() {
enum Names { Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Smith }

immutable(bool function(in Names[]) pure nothrow)[] predicates = [
s => s[Names.Baker] != s.length - 1,
s => s[Names.Cooper] != 0,
s => s[Names.Fletcher] != 0 && s[Names.Fletcher] != s.length-1,
s => s[Names.Miller] > s[Names.Cooper],
s => abs(s[Names.Smith] - s[Names.Fletcher]) != 1,
s => abs(s[Names.Cooper] - s[Names.Fletcher]) != 1];

permutations([EnumMembers!Names])
.filter!(solution => predicates.all!(pred => pred(solution)))
.writeln;
}
```

{{out}}

```[[Fletcher, Cooper, Miller, Smith, Baker]]
```

### Simpler Version

```void main() {
import std.stdio, std.math, std.algorithm, permutations2;

["Baker", "Cooper", "Fletcher", "Miller", "Smith"]
.permutations
.filter!(s =>
s.countUntil("Baker") != 4 && s.countUntil("Cooper") &&
s.countUntil("Fletcher") && s.countUntil("Fletcher") != 4 &&
s.countUntil("Miller") > s.countUntil("Cooper") &&
abs(s.countUntil("Smith") - s.countUntil("Fletcher")) != 1 &&
abs(s.countUntil("Cooper") - s.countUntil("Fletcher")) != 1)
.writeln;
}
```

The output is the same.

## EchoLisp

The problem is solved using the '''amb''' library. The solution separates the constrainst procedure from the solver procedure. The solver does not depend on names, number of floors. This flexibility allows to easily add floors, names, constraints. See Antoinette example below, Antoinette is very close ❤️ to Cooper, and wants a prime numbered floor. ===Setup - Solver===

```
(require 'hash)
(require' amb)

;;
;; Solver
;;

(define (dwelling-puzzle context names floors H)
;; each amb calls gives a floor to a name
(for ((name names))
(hash-set H name (amb context floors)))
;; They live on different floors.
(amb-require (distinct? (amb-choices context)))
(constraints floors H) ;; may fail and backtrack
;; result returned to amb-run
(for/list  ((name names))
(cons name (hash-ref H name)))
;; (amb-fail) is possible here to see all solutions
)

(amb-run dwelling-puzzle
(amb-make-context)
names
(iota (length names)) ;; list of floors : 0,1, ....
(make-hash)) ;; hash table : "name" -> floor
)

```

=== Problem data - constraints ===

```
(define names '("baker" "cooper" "fletcher" "miller" "smith" ))

(define-syntax-rule (floor name) (hash-ref H name))
(define-syntax-rule (touch a b) (= (abs (- (hash-ref H a) (hash-ref H b))) 1))

(define (constraints floors H)
(define top (1- (length floors)))
;; Baker does not live on the top floor.
(amb-require (!=  (floor "baker")  top))
;; Cooper does not live on the bottom floor.
(amb-require (!=  (floor "cooper") 0))

## Erlang

The people is an argument list. The rules is an argument list of options. Only rules that have a function in the program can be in the options. The design of the rules can be argued. Perhaps {cooper, does_not_live_on, 0}, etc, would be better for people unfamiliar with lisp.

## Forth

This solution takes advantage of several of Forth's strengths. Forth is able to picture a number in any base from 2 to 36.

This program simply iterates through all numbers between 01234 and 43210 (base 5). To see whether this is a permutation worth testing, a binary mask is generated. If all 5 bits are set (31 decimal), this is a possible candidate. Then all ASCII digits of the generated number are converted back to numbers by subtracting the value of ASCII "0". Finally each of the conditions is tested.

All conditions are confined to a single word. The algorithm "as is" will work up to 10 floors. After that, we have to take into consideration that characters A-Z are used as digits. That will work up to 36 floors.

Although this is not ANS Forth, one should have little trouble converting it. {{works with|4tH|3.6.20}}

The List monad is perfect for this kind of problem. One can express the problem statements in a very natural and concise way: {{works with|GHC|6.10+}}

```import Data.List (permutations)

dinesman = do
-- baker, cooper, fletcher, miller, smith are integers representing

-- of an apartment house that contains only five floors.
[baker, cooper, fletcher, miller, smith] <- permutations [1..5]

-- Baker does not live on the top floor.

-- Cooper does not live on the bottom floor.
guard \$ cooper /= 1

-- Fletcher does not live on either the top or the bottom floor.
guard \$ fletcher /= 5 && fletcher /= 1

-- Miller lives on a higher floor than does Cooper.
guard \$ miller > cooper

-- Smith does not live on a floor adjacent to Fletcher's.
guard \$ abs (smith - fletcher) /= 1

-- Fletcher does not live on a floor adjacent to Cooper's.

return (baker, cooper, fletcher, miller, smith)

main :: IO ()
main = do
print \$ head dinesman -- print first solution: (3,2,4,5,1)
print dinesman -- print all solutions (only one): [(3,2,4,5,1)]
```

Or as a list comprehension:

```import Data.List (permutations)

```

=={{header|Icon}} and {{header|Unicon}}== This solution uses string invocation to call operators and the fact the Icon/Unicon procedures are first class values. The procedure names could also be given as strings and it would be fairly simple to read the names and all the rules directly from a file. Each name and rule recurses and relies on the inherent backtracking in the language to achieve the goal.

The rules explicitly call stop() after showing the solution. Removing the ''stop'' would cause the solver to try all possible cases and report all possible solutions (if there were multiple ones).

```possible=: ((i.!5) A. i.5) { 'BCFMS'
```

Additionally, we are given a variety of constraints which eliminate some possibilities:

```possible=: (#~ 'B' ~: {:"1) possible         NB. Baker not on top floor
possible=: (#~ 'C' ~: {."1) possible         NB. Cooper not on bottom floor
possible=: (#~ 'F' ~: {:"1) possible         NB. Fletcher not on top floor
possible=: (#~ 'F' ~: {."1) possible         NB. Fletcher not on bottom floor
possible=: (#~ </@i."1&'CM') possible        NB. Miller on higher floor than Cooper
possible=: (#~ 0 = +/@E."1~&'SF') possible   NB. Smith not immediately below Fletcher

(Full occupancy and no cohabitation included in the predicate)

The generality of nesting '''concatMap''', and returning values enclosed in a list (empty where the test fails, populated otherwise), is the same as that of a using a list comprehension, to which it is formally equivalent. (concatMap is the bind operator for the list monad, and '''(a -> [a])''' is the type of the 'return' function for a list monad. The effect is to define a cartesian product, and apply a predicate to each member of that product. Any empty lists returned where a predicate yields ''false'' are eliminated by the concatenation component of concatMap.

The predicates here can be varied, and the depth of concatMap nestings can be adjusted to match the number of unknowns in play, with each concatMap binding one name, and defining the list of its possible values.

```(() => {
'use strict';

// concatMap :: (a -> [b]) -> [a] -> [b]
const concatMap = (f, xs) => [].concat.apply([], xs.map(f));

// range :: Int -> Int -> [Int]
const range = (m, n) =>
Array.from({
length: Math.floor(n - m) + 1
}, (_, i) => m + i);

// and :: [Bool] -> Bool
const and = xs => {
let i = xs.length;
while (i--)
if (!xs[i]) return false;
return true;
}

// nubBy :: (a -> a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [a]
const nubBy = (p, xs) => {
const x = xs.length ? xs[0] : undefined;
return x !== undefined ? [x].concat(
nubBy(p, xs.slice(1)
.filter(y => !p(x, y)))
) : [];
}

### =Less flexibility=

For a different trade-off between efficiency and generality, we can take full occupancy and no cohabitation out of the predicate, and assume them in the shape of the search space.

In the version above, with nested applications of concatMap, the requirement that all apartments are occupied by one person only is included in the test conditions. Alternatively, we can remove any flexibility about such civic virtues from the predicate, and restrict the universe of conceivable living arrangements, by using concatMap just once, and applying it only to the various permutations of full and distinct occupancy.

ES6 splat assignment allows us to bind all five names in a single application of concatMap. We now also need a '''permutations''' function of some kind.

```(() => {
'use strict';

// concatMap :: (a -> [b]) -> [a] -> [b]
const concatMap = (f, xs) => [].concat.apply([], xs.map(f));

// range :: Int -> Int -> [Int]
const range = (m, n) =>
Array.from({
length: Math.floor(n - m) + 1
}, (_, i) => m + i);

// and :: [Bool] -> Bool
const and = xs => {
let i = xs.length;
while (i--)
if (!xs[i]) return false;
return true;
}

// permutations :: [a] -> [[a]]
const permutations = xs =>
xs.length ? concatMap(x => concatMap(ys => [
[x].concat(ys)
],
permutations(delete_(x, xs))), xs) : [
[]
];

// delete :: a -> [a] -> [a]
const delete_ = (x, xs) =>
deleteBy((a, b) => a === b, x, xs);

// deleteBy :: (a -> a -> Bool) -> a -> [a] -> [a]
const deleteBy = (f, x, xs) =>
xs.reduce((a, y) => f(x, y) ? a : a.concat(y), []);

// PROBLEM DECLARATION

const floors = range(1, 5);

return concatMap(([c, b, f, m, s]) =>
and([ // CONDITIONS (assuming full occupancy, no cohabitation)
b !== 5, c !== 1, f !== 1, f !== 5,
m > c, Math.abs(s - f) > 1, Math.abs(c - f) > 1
]) ? [{
Baker: b,
Cooper: c,
Fletcher: f,
Miller: m,
Smith: s
}] : [], permutations(floors));

// --> [{"Baker":3, "Cooper":2, "Fletcher":4, "Miller":5, "Smith":1}]
})();

```
```[{"Baker":3, "Cooper":2, "Fletcher":4, "Miller":5, "Smith":1}]
```

## jq

Since we are told that "Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, and Smith live on different floors of an apartment house that contains only five floors", we can represent the apartment house as a JSON array, the first element of which names the occupant of the 1st floor, etc.

The solution presented here does not blindly generate all permutations. It can be characterized as a constraint-oriented approach.

```# Input: an array representing the apartment house, with null at a
#    particular position signifying that the identity of the occupant
#    there has not yet been determined.
# Output: an elaboration of the input array but including person, and
#   satisfying cond, where . in cond refers to the placement of person
def resides(person; cond):
range(0;5) as \$n
| if (.[\$n] == null or .[\$n] == person) and (\$n|cond) then .[\$n] = person
else empty   # no elaboration is possible
end ;

# English:
def top: 4;
def bottom: 0;
def higher(j): . > j;
def adjacent(j): (. - j) | (. == 1 or . == -1);
```

'''Solution''':

```[]
| resides("Baker";  . != top)                     # Baker does not live on the top floor
| resides("Cooper"; . != bottom)                  # Cooper does not live on the bottom floor
| resides("Fletcher"; . != top and . != bottom)   # Fletcher does not live on either the top or the bottom floor.
| index("Cooper") as \$Cooper
| resides("Miller"; higher( \$Cooper) )            # Miller lives on a higher floor than does Cooper
| index("Fletcher") as \$Fletcher
| resides("Smith"; adjacent(\$Fletcher) | not)     # Smith does not live on a floor adjacent to Fletcher's.
| select( \$Fletcher | adjacent( \$Cooper ) | not ) # Fletcher does not live on a floor adjacent to Cooper's.
```

=={{header|Mathematica}} / {{header|Wolfram Language}}== Loads all names into memory as variables, then asserts various restrictions on them before trying to resolve them by assuming that they're integers. This works by assuming that the names are the floors the people are on. This method is slow but direct.

```
{Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Smith};
(Unequal @@ %) && (And @@ (0 < # < 6 & /@ %)) &&
Baker < 5 &&
Cooper > 1 &&
1 < Fletcher < 5 &&
Miller > Cooper &&
Abs[Smith - Fletcher] > 1 &&
Abs[Cooper - Fletcher] > 1 //
Reduce[#, %, Integers] &

```

{{out}}

```Baker == 3 && Cooper == 2 && Fletcher == 4 && Miller == 5 && Smith == 1
```

### Alternate Version

A much quicker and traditional method. This generates all permutations of a list containing the five names as strings. The list of permutations is then filtered using the restrictions given in the problem until only one permutation is left.

```
p = Position[#1, #2][[1, 1]] &;
Permutations[{"Baker", "Cooper", "Fletcher", "Miller", "Smith"}, {5}];
Select[%, #[[5]] != "Baker" &];
Select[%, #[[1]] != "Cooper" &];
Select[%, #[[1]] != "Fletcher" && #[[5]] != "Fletcher" &];
Select[%, #~p~"Miller" > #~p~"Cooper" &];
Select[%, Abs[#~p~"Smith" - #~p~"Fletcher"] > 1 &];
Select[%, Abs[#~p~"Cooper" - #~p~"Fletcher"] > 1 &]

```

{{out}}

```{{"Smith", "Cooper", "Baker", "Fletcher", "Miller"}}
```

## Perl

A solution that parses a structured version of the problem text, translates it into a Perl expression, and uses it for a brute-force search:

'''Setup'''

```use strict;
use warnings;
use feature qw(state say);
use List::Util 1.33 qw(pairmap);
use Algorithm::Permute qw(permute);

our %predicates = (
#                       | object    | sprintf format for Perl expression |
#   --------------------+-----------+------------------------------------+
'on bottom'      => [ ''        , '\$f[%s] == 1'                      ],
'on top'         => [ ''        , '\$f[%s] == @f'                     ],
'lower than'     => [ 'person'  , '\$f[%s] < \$f[%s]'                  ],
'higher than'    => [ 'person'  , '\$f[%s] > \$f[%s]'                  ],
'directly below' => [ 'person'  , '\$f[%s] == \$f[%s] - 1'             ],
'directly above' => [ 'person'  , '\$f[%s] == \$f[%s] + 1'             ],
'adjacent to'    => [ 'person'  , 'abs(\$f[%s] - \$f[%s]) == 1'        ],
'on'             => [ 'ordinal' , '\$f[%s] == \'%s\''                 ],
);

our %nouns = (
'person'  => qr/[a-z]+/i,
'ordinal' => qr/1st | 2nd | 3rd | \d+th/x,
);

sub parse_and_solve {
my @facts = @_;

state \$parser = qr/^(?<subj>\$nouns{person}) (?<not>not )?(?|@{[
join '|', pairmap {
"(?<pred>\$a)" .
(\$b->[0] ? " (?<obj>\$nouns{\$b->[0]})" : '')
} %predicates
]})\$/;

my (@expressions, %ids, \$i);
my \$id = sub { defined \$_[0] ? \$ids{\$_[0]} //= \$i++ : () };

foreach (@facts) {
/\$parser/ or die "Cannot parse '\$_'\n";

my \$pred = \$predicates{\$+{pred}};
my \$expr = '(' . sprintf(\$pred->[1], \$id->(\$+{subj}),
\$pred->[0] eq 'person' ? \$id->(\$+{obj}) : \$+{obj}). ')';
\$expr = '!' . \$expr if \$+{not};

push @expressions, \$expr;
}

my @f = 1..\$i;
eval 'no warnings "numeric";
permute {
say join(", ", pairmap { "\$f[\$b] \$a" } %ids)
if ('.join(' && ', @expressions).');
} @f;';
}
```

Note that it can easily be extended by modifying the `%predicates` and `%nouns` hashes at the top.

'''Problem statement'''

Since trying to extract information from free-form text feels a little too flaky, the problem statement is instead expected as structured text with one fact per line, each of them having one of these two forms:

• `<name> <position>`
• `<name> not <position>` ...where `<position>` can be any of:
• `on bottom`
• `on top`
• `lower than <name>`
• `higher than <name>`
• `directly below <name>`
• `directly above <name>`
• `adjacent to <name>`
• `on <numeral>` (e.g. 1st, 2nd, etc.)

It is assumed that there are as many floors as there are different names.

Thus, the problem statement from the task description translates to:

```parse_and_solve(<DATA>);

__DATA__
Baker not on top
Cooper not on bottom
Fletcher not on top
Fletcher not on bottom
Miller higher than Cooper
```

{{out}}

```
2 Cooper, 5 Miller, 3 Baker, 1 Smith, 4 Fletcher

```

When there are multiple matching configurations, it lists them all (on separate lines).

## Perl 6

### By parsing the problem

{{trans|Perl}}

```use MONKEY-SEE-NO-EVAL;

}

token name    { :i <[a..z]>+              { make %ids{~\$/} //= \$c++ } }
token ordinal { [1st | 2nd | 3rd | \d+th] { make +\$/.match(/(\d+)/)[0]     } }

EVAL 'for [1..%ids.elems].permutations -> @f {

}'
}

parse_and_solve Q:to/END/;
Baker not on top

END
```

Supports the same grammar for the problem statement, as the Perl solution.

```

### Simple solution

{{Works with|rakudo|2015-11-15}}

```# Contains only five floors. 5! = 120 permutations.
for (flat (1..5).permutations) -> \$b, \$c, \$f, \$m, \$s {
say "Baker=\$b Cooper=\$c Fletcher=\$f Miller=\$m Smith=\$s"
if  \$b != 5         # Baker    !live  on top floor.
and \$c != 1         # Cooper   !live  on bottom floor.
and \$f != 1|5       # Fletcher !live  on top or the bottom floor.
and \$m  > \$c        # Miller    lives on a higher floor than Cooper.
and \$s != \$f-1|\$f+1 # Smith    !live  adjacent to Fletcher
and \$f != \$c-1|\$c+1 # Fletcher !live  adjacent to Cooper
;
}
```

Adding more people and floors requires changing the list that's being used for the permutations, adding a variable for the new person, a piece of output in the string and finally to adjust all mentions of the "top" floor. Adjusting to different rules requires changing the multi-line if statement in the loop.

{{out}}

```Baker=3 Cooper=2 Fletcher=4 Miller=5 Smith=1
```

## Phix

Simple static/hard-coded solution (brute force search)

```enum Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Smith
constant names={"Baker","Cooper","Fletcher","Miller","Smith"}

procedure test(sequence flats)
if flats[Baker]!=5
and flats[Cooper]!=1
and not find(flats[Fletcher],{1,5})
and flats[Miller]>flats[Cooper]
and abs(flats[Smith]-flats[Fletcher])!=1
and abs(flats[Fletcher]-flats[Cooper])!=1 then
for i=1 to 5 do
?{names[i],flats[i]}
end for
end if
end procedure

for i=1 to factorial(5) do
test(permute(i,tagset(5)))
end for
```

{{out}}

```
{"Baker",3}
{"Cooper",2}
{"Fletcher",4}
{"Miller",5}
{"Smith",1}

```

Something more flexible. The nested rules worked just as well, and of course the code will cope with various content in names/rules.

```sequence names = {"Baker","Cooper","Fletcher","Miller","Smith"},
rules = {{"!=","Baker",length(names)},
{"!=","Cooper",1},
{"!=","Fletcher",1},
{"!=","Fletcher",length(names)},
{">","Miller","Cooper"},
--                {"!=",{"abs","Smith","Fletcher"},1},
--                {"!=",{"abs","Fletcher","Cooper"},1},

function eval(sequence rule, sequence flats)
{string operand, object op1, object op2} = rule
if string(op1) then
op1 = flats[find(op1,names)]
--  elsif sequence(op1) then
--      op1 = eval(op1,flats)
end if
if string(op2) then
op2 = flats[find(op2,names)]
--  elsif sequence(op2) then
--      op2 = eval(op2,flats)
end if
switch operand do
case "!=": return op1!=op2
case ">":  return op1>op2
--      case "abs": return abs(op1-op2)
end switch
return 9/0
end function

procedure test(sequence flats)
for i=1 to length(rules) do
if not eval(rules[i],flats) then return end if
end for
for i=1 to length(names) do
?{names[i],flats[i]}
end for
end procedure

for i=1 to factorial(length(names)) do
test(permute(i,tagset(length(names))))
end for
```

Same output

## PicoLisp

Using Pilog (PicoLisp Prolog). The problem can be modified by changing just the 'dwelling' rule (the "Problem statement"). This might involve the names and number of dwellers (the list in the first line), and statements about who does (or does not) live on the top floor (using the 'topFloor' predicate), the bottom floor (using the 'bottomFloor' predicate), on a higher floor (using the 'higherFloor' predicate) or on an adjacent floor (using the 'adjacentFloor' predicate). The logic follows an implied AND, and statements may be arbitrarily combined using OR and NOT (using the 'or' and 'not' predicates), or any other Pilog (Prolog in picoLisp) built-in predicates. If the problem statement has several solutions, they will be all generated.

```# Problem statement
(be dwelling (@Tenants)
(permute (Baker Cooper Fletcher Miller Smith) @Tenants)
(not (topFloor Baker @Tenants))
(not (bottomFloor Cooper @Tenants))
(not (or ((topFloor Fletcher @Tenants)) ((bottomFloor Fletcher @Tenants))))
(higherFloor Miller Cooper @Tenants)
(not (adjacentFloor Fletcher Cooper @Tenants)) )

# Utility rules

(equal (@ @ @ @ @Tenant) @Lst) )

(be bottomFloor (@Tenant @Lst)
(equal (@Tenant @ @ @ @) @Lst) )

About flexibility : each name is associated with a floor, (contiguous floors differs from 1). Bottom is always 1 but Top is defined from the number of names. Each statement of the problem is translated in a Prolog rule, (a constraint on the floors), we can add so much of rules that we want, and a modification of one statement only modified one rule. To solve the problem, library clpfd does the job.

### Plain Prolog version

```select([A|As],S):- select(A,S,S1),select(As,S1).
select([],_).

dinesmans(X) :-
%% Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, and Smith live on different floors
%% of an apartment house that contains only five floors.
select([Baker,Cooper,Fletcher,Miller,Smith],[1,2,3,4,5]),

%% Baker does not live on the top floor.
Baker =\= 5,

%% Cooper does not live on the bottom floor.
Cooper =\= 1,

%% Fletcher does not live on either the top or the bottom floor.
Fletcher =\= 1, Fletcher =\= 5,

%% Miller lives on a higher floor than does Cooper.
Miller > Cooper,

%% Smith does not live on a floor adjacent to Fletcher's.
1 =\= abs(Smith - Fletcher),

%% Fletcher does not live on a floor adjacent to Cooper's.
1 =\= abs(Fletcher - Cooper),

%% Where does everyone live?
X = ['Baker'(Baker), 'Cooper'(Cooper), 'Fletcher'(Fletcher),
'Miller'(Miller), 'Smith'(Smith)].

main :-  bagof( X, dinesmans(X), L )
-> maplist( writeln, L), nl, write('No more solutions.')
;  write('No solutions.').

```

Ease of change (flexibility) is arguably evident in the code. [http://ideone.com/8n9IQ The output]:

```
[Baker(3), Cooper(2), Fletcher(4), Miller(5), Smith(1)]

No more solutions.

```

### Testing as soon as possible

```dinesmans(X) :-
%% 1. Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, and Smith live on different floors
%%    of an apartment house that contains only five floors.
Domain = [1,2,3,4,5],

%% 2. Baker does not live on the top floor.
select(Baker,Domain,D1), Baker =\= 5,

%% 3. Cooper does not live on the bottom floor.
select(Cooper,D1,D2), Cooper =\= 1,

%% 4. Fletcher does not live on either the top or the bottom floor.
select(Fletcher,D2,D3), Fletcher =\= 1, Fletcher =\= 5,

%% 5. Miller lives on a higher floor than does Cooper.
select(Miller,D3,D4), Miller > Cooper,

%% 6. Smith does not live on a floor adjacent to Fletcher's.
select(Smith,D4,_), 1 =\= abs(Smith - Fletcher),

%% 7. Fletcher does not live on a floor adjacent to Cooper's.
1 =\= abs(Fletcher - Cooper),

%% Where does everyone live?
X = ['Baker'(Baker), 'Cooper'(Cooper), 'Fletcher'(Fletcher),
'Miller'(Miller), 'Smith'(Smith)].

```

[http://ideone.com/1vYTV Running it] produces the same output, but more efficiently. Separate testing in SWI shows 1,328 inferences for the former, 379 inferences for the latter version. Moving rule 7. up below rule 4. brings it down to 295 inferences.

### By parsing the problem statement

This example parses the statement of the problem as given and allows some variability such as the number of people, floors and constraints can be varied although the type of constraints allowed and the sentence structure is limited

;Setup

Parsing is done with the aid of the multi-line regular expression at the head of the program.

;Problem statement

This is not much more than calling a function on the text of the problem!

### Simple Solutions

```from itertools import permutations

class Names:

seq = [Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Smith]
strings = "Baker Cooper Fletcher Miller Smith".split()

predicates = [
lambda s: s[Names.Baker] != len(s)-1,
lambda s: s[Names.Cooper] != 0,
lambda s: s[Names.Fletcher] != 0 and s[Names.Fletcher] != len(s)-1,
lambda s: s[Names.Miller] > s[Names.Cooper],
lambda s: abs(s[Names.Smith] - s[Names.Fletcher]) != 1,

for sol in permutations(Names.seq):
if all(p(sol) for p in predicates):
print(" ".join(x for x, y in sorted(zip(Names.strings, sol), key=lambda x: x[1])))
```

{{out}}

```Smith Cooper Baker Fletcher Miller
```

Or, in a (pylinted) bare bones format:

```'''Dinesman's multiple-dwelling problem'''

from itertools import permutations

print([

'Cooper on ' + str(c),

if all([
5 != b,
1 != c,
1 != f,
5 != f,

1 < abs(s - f),
1 < abs(c - f)
])
])
```

{{Out}}

```[('Baker on 3', 'Cooper on 2', 'Fletcher on 4', 'Miller on 5', 'Smith on 1')]
```

Which we could then disaggregate and comment a little more fully, replacing the list comprehension with a direct use of the list monad bind operator (concatMap):

```'''Dinesman's multiple-dwelling problem'''

## R

```

```

## Racket

This is a direct translation of the problem constraints using an amb operator to make the choices (and therefore continuations to do the search). Since it's a direct translation, pretty much all aspects of the problem can change. Note that a direct translation was preferred even though it could be made to run much faster.

```
#lang racket

;; A quick `amb' implementation
(define fails '())
(define (fail) (if (pair? fails) ((car fails)) (error "no more choices!")))
(define (amb xs)
(let/cc k (set! fails (cons k fails)))
(if (pair? xs) (begin0 (car xs) (set! xs (cdr xs)))
(begin (set! fails (cdr fails)) (fail))))
(define (assert . conditions) (when (memq #f conditions) (fail)))

## REXX

This REXX version tries to keep the rules as simple as possible, with easy-to-read '''if''' statements.

Names of the tenants can be easily listed, and the floors are numbered according to the American system,

that is, the ground floor is the 1st floor, the next floor up is the 2nd floor, etc.

The REXX program is broken up into several parts: ::* preamble where names and floors are defined. ::* iterating all possibilities (permutations would be faster, but with obtuse code). ::* evaluation of the possibilities. ::* elimination of cohabitation possibilities (tenants must live on separate floors). ::* elimination of possibilities according to the rules. ::* displaying the possible solution(s), if any. ::* displaying the number of solutions found.

Note that the '''TH''' function has extra boilerplate to handle larger numbers.

With one more REXX statement, the tenants could be listed by the order of the floors they live on;

(currently, the tenants are listed in the order they are listed in the '''names''' variable).

The "rules" that contain '''==''' could be simplified to '''=''' for readability.

### By parsing the problem

Inspired by the Python version.

```def solve( problem )
lines = problem.split(".")
names = lines.first.scan( /[A-Z]\w*/ )
re_names = Regexp.union( names )
# Later on, search for these keywords (the word "not" is handled separately).
words = %w(first second third fourth fifth sixth seventh eighth ninth tenth
re_keywords = Regexp.union( words )

predicates = lines[1..-2].flat_map do |line|  #build an array of lambda's
keywords = line.scan( re_keywords )
name1, name2 = line.scan( re_names )
keywords.map do |keyword|
l = case keyword
when "bottom"   then ->(c){ c.first == name1 }
when "top"      then ->(c){ c.last == name1 }
when "higher"   then ->(c){ c.index( name1 ) > c.index( name2 ) }
when "lower"    then ->(c){ c.index( name1 ) < c.index( name2 ) }
when "adjacent" then ->(c){ (c.index( name1 ) - c.index( name2 )).abs == 1 }
else                 ->(c){ c[words.index(keyword)] == name1 }
end
line =~ /\bnot\b/ ? ->(c){not l.call(c) } : l  # handle "not"
end
end

names.permutation.detect{|candidate| predicates.all?{|predicate| predicate.(candidate)}}
end
```

The program operates under these assumptions: *Sentences end with a ".". *Every capitalized word in the first sentence is a name, the rest is ignored. *There are as many floors as there are names. *The only relevant words beside the names are: first, second, third,.., tenth, bottom, top, higher, lower, adjacent,(and) not. The rest, including the last sentence, is ignored.

Program invocation:

```#Direct positional words like top, bottom, first, second etc. can be combined; they refer to one name.
#The relative positional words higher, lower and adjacent can be combined; they need two names, not positions.

demo1 = "Abe Ben Charlie David. Abe not second top. not adjacent Ben Charlie.

demo2 = "A B C D. A not adjacent D. not B adjacent higher C. C lower D. Last line"

problem1 = "Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, and Smith live on different floors of an apartment house that
contains only five floors. Baker does not live on the top floor. Cooper does not live on the bottom floor.
Fletcher does not live on either the top or the bottom floor. Miller lives on a higher floor than does Cooper.
Smith does not live on a floor adjacent to Fletcher's. Fletcher does not live on a floor adjacent to Cooper's.
Where does everyone live?"

# from the Python version:
problem2 = "Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Guinan, and Smith

## Run BASIC

This program simply iterates by looking at each room available for each person. It then looks to see if it meets the requirements for each person by looking at the results of the iteration. It makes sure the room numbers add up to 15 which is the requirement of adding the floors in 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15.

```for baler          = 1 to 4                                    ' can not be in room 5
for cooper        = 2 to 5                                    ' can not be in room 1
for fletcher    = 2 to 4                                    ' can not be in room 1 or 5
for miller     = 1 to 5                                    ' can be in any room
for smith     = 1 to 5                                    ' can be in any room
if baler <> cooper and fletcher <> miller and miller > cooper and abs(smith - fletcher) > 1 and abs(fletcher - cooper) > 1 then
if baler + cooper + fletcher + miller + smith = 15 then  ' that is 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5
rooms\$ = baler;cooper;fletcher;miller;smith
print "baler: ";baler;" copper: ";cooper;" fletcher: ";fletcher;" miller: ";miller;" smith: ";smith
end
end if
end if
next smith

next baler
print "Can't assign rooms"                                     ' print this if it can not find a solution

### Enhanced Solution

Combine the rules with the person names and separated the original task with an extension.

```import scala.math.abs

new Rule("Cooper2") { val exclusion = (_: Map[String, Int])(person) != groundFloor },
new Rule("Fletcher4") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor2: Map[String, Int]) => !List(groundFloor, topFloor).contains(suggestedFloor2(person))
}, new Rule("Miller") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor3: Map[String, Int]) => suggestedFloor3(person) > suggestedFloor3("Cooper2")
}, new Rule("Smith") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor4: Map[String, Int]) => abs(suggestedFloor4(person) - suggestedFloor4("Fletcher4")) != 1
}, new Rule("Fletcher4") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor5: Map[String, Int]) => abs(suggestedFloor5(person) - suggestedFloor5("Cooper2")) != 1
})

def extensionDef(topFloor: Int) = List(new Rule("Rollo5") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor6: Map[String, Int]) => !List(3, 4, topFloor).contains((suggestedFloor6: Map[String, Int])(person))
}, new Rule("Rollo5") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor7: Map[String, Int]) => suggestedFloor7(person) < suggestedFloor7("Smith")
}, new Rule("Rollo5") {
val exclusion = (suggestedFloor8: Map[String, Int]) => suggestedFloor8(person) > suggestedFloor8("Fletcher4")
})

def allRulesDef(topFloor: Int) = rulesDef(topFloor) ++ extensionDef(topFloor)

val tenants = allRulesDef(0).map(_.person).distinct // Pilot balloon to get # of tenants
val topFloor = tenants.size

## Tcl

It's trivial to extend this problem to deal with more floors and people and more constraints; the main internally-generated constraint is that the names of people should begin with an upper case character so that they are distinct from internal variables. This code also relies on the caller encoding the conditions as expressions that produce a value that is/can be interpreted as a boolean. {{tcllib|struct::list}}

```package require Tcl 8.5
package require struct::list

proc dinesmanSolve {floors people constraints} {
# Search for a possible assignment that satisfies the constraints
struct::list foreachperm p \$floors {
lassign \$p {*}\$people
set found 1
foreach c \$constraints {
if {![expr \$c]} {
set found 0
break
}
}
if {\$found} break
}
# Found something, or exhausted possibilities
if {!\$found} {
error "no solution possible"
}
# Generate in "nice" order
foreach f \$floors {
foreach person \$people {
if {[set \$person] == \$f} {
lappend result \$f \$person
break
}
}
}
return \$result
}
```

Solve the particular problem:

```set soln [dinesmanSolve {1 2 3 4 5} {Baker Cooper Fletcher Miller Smith} {

## zkl

This solution uses reflection to make the problem statement more "natural". Each dinesman is a variable, whose name is the dinesman name and value is the floor the dinesman lives on. The constraints are then a straight translation of the problem statement. The "each live on a different floors" is implicit by using permutation of the floors.

A floor plan is generated, shoved into the variables and the constraints are run. If they are all true, we have a solution. The first false constraint stops the running of the rest of them (conditional and).

This could be generalized even more by putting the variables and constraint functions in a class, then reflection could be used to automagically get the variables, variable names and constraint functions.

```var Baker, Cooper, Fletcher, Miller, Smith;  // value == floor
const bottom=1,top=5;	// floors: 1..5
// All live on different floors, enforced by using permutations of floors
//fcn c0{ (Baker!=Cooper!=Fletcher) and (Fletcher!=Miller!=Smith) }
fcn c1{ Baker!=top }
fcn c2{ Cooper!=bottom }
fcn c3{ bottom!=Fletcher!=top }
fcn c4{ Miller>Cooper }
fcn c5{ (Fletcher - Smith).abs() !=1 }
fcn c6{ (Fletcher - Cooper).abs()!=1 }

filters:=T(c1,c2,c3,c4,c5,c6);
dudes:=T("Baker","Cooper","Fletcher","Miller","Smith");  // for reflection
foreach combo in (Utils.Helpers.permuteW([bottom..top].walk())){  // lazy
dudes.zip(combo).apply2(fcn(nameValue){ setVar(nameValue.xplode()) });
if(not filters.runNFilter(False)){  // all constraints are True
vars.println();		       // use reflection to print solution
