Yeah it's definitely a pain. Fortunately someone has already done the coding for such a problem, and it works. Now I just need to implement it tweak a few things. Results coming soon
I just remembered to add that the number to look for must not contain 5. Since Phi to ten decimal places does not have a 5 and reduces to 1237 using the technique, I used to the code to look for numbers that did not have 5.
