You've just traded fewer iterations for a more complex inner loop. My point was and still is that the job doesn't have a clean strategy to "solving" it. Thus brute force, however fancy you choose to get, still multiplies quickly to the not-in-my-lifetime stage. Of course that is what you wound up saying too. =) {and I did say you could be fancy with the code, just that it just gains you a few packages}.

Also, I still say it doens't matter how many different sizes of box there are in the world. He didn't ask that question. No matter tho, it's just beating a dead horse.

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)
