in reply to Let's get lazy

May not be exactly what you are looking for but I wrote this peice of code as a way to find (through brute force) all possible combinations of something (in this case locker combinations, don't ask why). anyway here it is:
#All possible combination generator use strict; use Quantum::Superpositions; open (DUMP, ">combos.txt"); my @list; my $i = 0; while (1) { my $num = int(rand(31)) . "-" . int(rand(31)) . "-" . int(rand(31)); if ($num eq any(@list)) { next; } else { @list[$i] = $num; print "$num "; print DUMP "$num\n"; $i++; } }

    Since I don't see the glob trick mentioned in this thread, and I'm not too keen on your pick-random-combos-until-we-think-weve-got-them-all solution, here are two ways to solve the locker combo problem.
    #!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; # golfed version using glob my $nums = join(',',1..31); my @list1 = glob("{$nums}-{$nums}-{$nums}"); print "L1: $_\n" for @list1; # more sane way of doing that..... my @list2; for my $i (1..31) { for my $j (1..31) { for my $k (1..31) { push(@list2,"$i-$j-$k"); } } } print "L2: $_\n" for @list2;
    And here is the glob trick used to solve the original problem...
    #!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; # one ordering.... my $letters = ',A,C,G,N,T'; my @list1 = grep {/./} glob("{$letters}"x4); print "L1: $_\n" for @list1; # different ordering my $letter2 = 'A,C,G,N,T'; my @list2 = (glob("{$letter2}"x2),glob("{$letter2}"x3),glob("{$letter2 +}"x4)); print "L2: $_\n" for @list2;
