in reply to Generating all 5-card hands

use strict; use warnings; @_ = (2..10,'J','Q','K','A'); comb('', 4, 2..4,6..10,'J','Q','K','A',@_,@_,@_); sub comb { my ($str, $depth, @items) = @_; if (!$depth--) { interpret($str); return; } comb("$str $items[$_]", $depth, @items[($_+1)..$#items]) for (0..$ +#items) } sub interpret { my @cards = split / /, "5$_[0]"; # Do whatever with @cards; }
Actually though, the possible set can't contain any 5's except the original 5, nor can it contain any 10, J, Q, K - since all hands involving those will have at least 2 points. This cuts the number of combinations significantly.
@_ = (2..4,6..9,'A'); comb('', 4, @_,@_,@_,@_);
Nor can you have more than one of any card.
comb('', 4, 2..4,6..9,'A');
It should be fairly easy to figure out whether there are straights or 15's in the permutations? of this set. Code to follow...
use strict; use warnings; comb('', 4, 1..4,6..9); sub comb { my ($str, $depth, @items) = @_; if (!$depth--) { interpret($str); return; } comb("$str $items[$_]", $depth, @items[($_+1)..$#items]) for (0..$ +#items) } sub interpret { my @cards = split / /, "5$_[0]"; @cards = sort {$b <=> $a} @cards; my $flag = 1; for (0..3) { $flag = 0 if $cards[$_+1] != ($cards[$_]-1); } return if $flag; for (perm(@cards)) { return if sum(split //) == 15; } print join " ", @cards; } BEGIN { my @c_out; sub perm { @c_out = (); permute('', $_, @_) for (0..$#_); return @c_out; } sub permute { my ($str, $depth, @chars) = @_; if (!$depth--) { push @c_out, $str.$_ for @chars; } else { permute($str.$chars[$_], $depth, @chars[($_+1)..($#chars)] +) for (0..$#chars); } } } sub sum { my $n; $n += $_ for @_; return $n; }
Very rough code, but upshot is that there are no hands with a 5 that don't have at least 2 points. I could actually have done this whole thing on paper, since there's very few sets of cards that have to be tested for 15's and straights.
