  1. Parse the input string to a list of integers
  2. Create lists of each 5 consecutive digits.
  3. Find the product of each list.
  4. Find the max product.

    how about this?
    open System
    let t = “7316717653133062491922511967442657474235534919”
    t.ToCharArray() |> Seq.map (fun x -> Int32.Parse(x.ToString())) |> Seq.windowed(5)
    |> Seq.map (fun y -> Seq.fold (fun acc x -> acc * x) 1 y) |> Seq.max
