The number, 1406357289, is a 0 to 9 pandigital number because it is made up of each of the digits 0 to 9 in some order, but it also has a rather interesting sub-string divisibility property. Let d1 be the 1st digit, d2 be the 2nd digit, and so on. In this way, we note the following: d2d3d4=406 is divisible by 2 d3d4d5=063 is divisible by 3 d4d5d6=635 is divisible by 5 d5d6d7=357 is divisible by 7 d6d7d8=572 is divisible by 11 d7d8d9=728 is divisible by 13 d8d9d10=289 is divisible by 17 Find the sum of all 0 to 9 pandigital numbers with this property.

The implementation is not elegant, but amazingly fast.
