There are


# AntiDiagonals #Permutations
9x9x...x9x9 x nxn-1x...x2x1


calculations of digit segments.

MINUS

10^n possible digit segments.

So the Exhaustive AntiDiagonal Method covers every one!

While it's true that each row is missing from the EAM Set

at digit N, that row appears in the EAM Set at digit N-1.

As N->oo the EAM Set is just every digit combination (including the
