```I asked ChatGPT to solve this problem, which it did perfectly.

Then I asked ChatGPT to create code in LiveCode to solve the same problem.  It generated some surprisingly great "looking" LC script which on the surface seemed like it would work.  I allowed ChatGPT 4 tries to generate functional and complete code to solve this problem.  It was never able to.  Try it.  It's interesting to see the variations that it comes up with.

PROBLEM in plain English:

If there is a finite number of colored slots on a board; let’s say 15, the first 4 are filled. Also slot 7 and 9 are filled. I have 6 new colors that I need to store in open slots.  Which available slots can I put these 6 colors without leaving any gaps?  Each color must be unique.

ChatGPT response:

To place 6 new colors in the available slots without leaving any gaps, you'll need to use slots that are consecutive and unoccupied. In your scenario, you have a board with 15 slots, and the first 4 are filled, slot 7 is filled, and slot 9 is filled. So, you have the following situation:

1.  Filled
2.  Filled
3.  Filled
4.  Filled
5.  Available
6.  Available
7.  Filled
8.  Available
9.  Filled
10. Available
11. Available
12. Available
13. Available
14. Available
15. Available

To place 6 unique colors without any gaps, you can use slots 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, and 12. This will fill all the available slots without any gaps:

1.  Filled
2.  Filled
3.  Filled
4.  Filled
5.  New Color
6.  New Color
7.  Filled
8.  New Color
9.  Filled
10. New Color
11. New Color
12. New Color
13. Available
14. Available
15. Available

Now you've placed 6 unique colors in the available slots without any gaps.
