Library
This is an example of a library. You may see a list of other libraries used on Rosetta Code at Category:Solutions by Library.

Factor-numspec is a vocabulary that aims to make tasks involving the restriction of digits within numbers easy. This vocabulary was made because there are a fair number of tasks on Rosetta Code involving this operation and more being added all the time.

To use it yourself, copy the source code (in the talk page) to a text file called `numspec.factor` and then save it in a sub-directory called `numspec` inside your `work` directory. `work` is in the same directory as the Factor executable.

Finally, in your program, make sure to add `numspec` to your `USING:` like so:

<lang factor>USING: math numspec prettyprint ;</lang>

### Examples

It's important to remember that a number specification defines a named lazy list constant. Whether the list ends or not depends on whether you end the specification with `...`.

Get all three-digit numbers beginning and ending with `3`: <lang factor>USING: lists numspec prettyprint ; DIGIT: _ 0123456789 NUMSPEC: a 3_3 ; a list>array .</lang>

Output:
```{ 303 313 323 333 343 353 363 373 383 393 }
```

Literals can be added where necessary. Let's make special cases for one- and two-digit numbers. <lang factor>USING: lists numspec prettyprint ; DIGIT: _ 0123456789 NUMSPEC: b 3 33 3_3 ; b list>array .</lang>

Output:
```{ 3 33 303 313 323 333 343 353 363 373 383 393 }
```

But what if you don't want to make a case for every number of digits? Got you covered! `...` rudimentarily infers the pattern. <lang factor>USING: lists lists.lazy numspec prettyprint ; DIGIT: _ 0123456789 NUMSPEC: c 3 33 3_3 ... ; c [ 3030 < ] lwhile list>array .</lang>

Output:
```{ 3 33 303 313 323 333 343 353 363 373 383 393 3003 3013 3023 }
```

Since this is an infinite list, we need to remember to limit it in some fashion (like with `lwhile`).

Numbers with only prime digits: <lang factor>USING: lists lists.lazy numspec prettyprint ; DIGIT: P 2357 NUMSPEC: d P PP ... ; 20 d ltake list>array .</lang>

Output:
```{ 2 3 5 7 22 23 25 27 32 33 35 37 52 53 55 57 72 73 75 77 }
```

`2` and `5` surrounded by `9`s: <lang factor>USING: lists lists.lazy numspec prettyprint ; DIGIT: V 25 NUMSPEC: e 9 99 9V9 ... ; 30 e ltake list>array .</lang>

Output:
```{
9
99
929
959
9229
9259
9529
9559
92229

}
```
