in reply to Calculate overlap between 2 ranges of numbers

The hard way. :-)

Seriously, there may be easier solutions, (Set::IntSpan).

This way involves the vec function.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use List::Util qw/ min max /; my @range = ([5,15], [2, 20]); my $min = min map {$_->[0]} @range; my $max = max map {$_->[1]} @range; my @vec = ("") x @range; for my $i (0 .. $#vec) { vec($vec[$i], $_, 1) = 1 for $range[$i][0] .. $range[$i][1]; } my $overlap = shift @vec; $overlap &= $vec[ $_ ] for 0 .. $#vec; my $count; for my $offset ($min .. $max) { ++$count if vec($overlap, $offset, 1) == 1; } print $count;
And a thank you for this solution from another post by BrowserUK.
