Hi Elmar,
I thought of a simple square filled with Voynichese sentences (+ spaces)
with a window (I thought not necessarily 1 line in height) moving randomly
on it, too but I suddenly stopped when I found that the char frequencies
distribution of first characters of each word and last characters of each
word are totally different (and are totally different from the char
frequencies distribution of the whole VM).
How do you think this problem can be solved?
One can think that the moving window will only start at a space on the main
board, but this will produce fewer combinations of unique words.
Bye,
Marzio
