The general solution is found to a bilinear reduction of the higher order nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Except for the previously known special cases having multisoliton solutions, the solution has the form of a single envelope solitary wave or wave train for all other values of the parameters. We conjecture that the generic solution is limited to such a narrow class of functions because the bilinear system is overdetermined.
