Description: Ever get a bit ticked off about the lack of TLDs/domains available? I wrote this little program to print out every possable 3-6 letter TLD. If ICANN would approve them all, I doubt it would be a problem anymore. But there's litte to no chance of that happening (at least any time soon).
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
# This was created to print out a list of all TLDs possable which are
# 3, 4, 5 and 6 characters long.
# This program will run for quite some time if you let it. I recommend
# hitting ^C after a short time. Espicially if you want to have it wri
+te to a file.
# I DO NOT recommend having it write to a file do the the huge dataset
+ it creates.
# If you do have it write to a file, the fault is in no way mine. The 
+author will not
# be held responsible for your actions.

# Letters and Numerals
@chars = qw(a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r
        s t u v w x y z 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9);

# Letters, Numerals and a null. If I don't have this, the program will
+ only return
# TLDs with 6 characters. This way, it return TLDs with 3-6 characters
@charsnull = (@chars,"");

foreach $char (@chars){
    $tld = $char;

    foreach $char (@chars){
        $tld2 = $tld . $char;     # to see why I did it this way, run 
+the program
                        # so everything is appended to $tld and watch 
+the output.
        foreach $char (@chars){
            $tld3 = $tld2 . $char;

            foreach $char (@charsnull){
                $tld4 = $tld3 . $char;

                foreach $char (@charsnull){
                    $tld5 = $tld4 . $char;

                    foreach $char (@charsnull){
                        $tld6 = $tld5 . $char;
                        print "$tld6\n";     # if you try the above co
+mment, be sure
                        #to change all the $tld(insert number here) va
+rs, to just, $tld.

    The code above generates duplicates (i.e. the same TLD will be generated more than once). Consider:
    The following does not have the duplicates problem. It could be optimized a bit (and shortened too), but I leave that as an exercise to the reader...
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @chars=(('a'..'z'),(0..9)); tld('',$_) for (3..6); sub tld{ my ($txt,$cnt)=@_; if($cnt==0){ print "$txt\n"; }else{ tld($txt.$_,$cnt-1) for (@chars); } }
      Agreed. Recursion suggests itself in this case.
      And much better - is to get rid of digits and then just use strings increment. So it will be just
      That's all :)
        now your missing numbered TLD's though :)
