Set::IntSpan can provide relevent routines when working with (connected) ranges of numbers. Although it can work with array references it can be initialized with just a string (and so you save a lot of memory).

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Set::IntSpan; my $range = Set::IntSpan->new( '50000-65535' ); my $used = Set::IntSpan->new( '50000-51545,51549,51555-51999' ); my $unused = $range->diff( $used ); my @newports; while (my $port = $unused->next) { print $port, "\n"; push @newports, $port; last if @newports == 10; } print "Unused before newports: ", $unused->run_list, "\n"; for (@newports) { $unused->remove($_); $used->insert($_); } print "Unused after newports: ", $unused->run_list, "\n"; print "Used after newports: ", $used->run_list, "\n"; __END__ C:\Old_Data\perlp>perl t5.pl 51546 51547 51548 51550 51551 51552 51553 51554 52000 52001 Unused before newports: 51546-51548,51550-51554,52000-65535 Unused after newports: 52002-65535 Used after newports: 50000-52001
Update: Well, as it happens, I shouldn't make statements about that which I don't know (well). The documentation says:

Sets are stored internally in a run-length coded form. This provides for both compact storage and efficient computation. In particular, set operations can be performed directly on the encoded representation...
