I've done some research on combinations and permuations in perl, and after a bit of hunting, I found:

Math::Combinatorics

This should do exactly what you want. I must say however, that I've never used it, so I don't know about it's relative speed and so on.

[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
[erix]: it's really a software book, albeit about experiences from the 60s-80s. People haven't changed all that much though.
[erix]: a software project book, is probably more exact
[ambrus]: Yes, but I'm not managing software teams either.
[ambrus]: I'm not only not a restaurant manager, but also not a software manager.
