The challenge is to write a sub that takes the paramters ($length, @symbols)
and produces an ordered list of all sequnces of length $length
that are combinations of characters from the list @symbols
. The output ordering is based on the order of @symbols
. Assume that @symbols is a list comprised of any quantity of one-byte ASCII chars.
My current attempt at 52 chars:
print join " ", c qw(2 a b c d);
print join " ", c qw(4 0 1);
aa ab ac ad ba bb bc bd ca cb cc cd da db dc dd
0000 0001 0010 0011 0100 0101 0110 0111 1000 1001 1010 1011 1100 1101
Good luck, and may your efforts yield little code :)
