Compsci 4g, Shotgun Experiment, Fall 2005

Methodology for creating shotgun data. Take a sentence or paragraph. Clone it four times (e.g., so one sentence becomes four repeats, separated by a space.) Now break the cloned/duplicated paragraph into random pieces.

Your task is to re-assemble the original message/sentence/paragraph. Don't spend more than one hour on this, turn in using Blackboard.
