It's at home; I'll send you the URL I found then, but if you can't wait, I just did some searches on "box bin packing algorithm" and came up with a .c source that implements it.

The problem with picking a box based on the total volume of your component boxes is that you can't expect to pack all of your boxes perfectly into a larger one. They're arbitrarily sized and you have to assume that there are going to be some gaps in and around them.

[Cosmic37]: I read that its possible to use the FANN library with Perl so I might try that now...
[corenth]: i have a question. I used map{ blah();blah(); blah();}@stuff; and it used up a ton of memory vs. the for(@stuff){} equivalent. What gives? (if anyone knows)
[Cosmic37]: FANN also has LGPL license which I like and its supposed to be quite a capable library from what I read
[corenth]: Cosmic, that sounds interesting. What is FANN (I could search it if I weren't so lazy about it)?
[Cosmic37]: how big was @stuff corenth?
[Cosmic37]: Fast Artificial Neural Network (FANN) is cross-platform open source programming library for developing multilayer feedforward Artificial Neural Networks
