in reply to [Solved] Converting a list of numbers to use a range operator

I've had this lying around. Is it any less painful?

use warnings; use strict; print ranges(2,3,4,10,11,12), "\n"; sub ranges { my @vals = @_; my $min = $vals[0]; my $max; my @list; for my $i (0 .. (scalar(@vals)-2)) { if (($vals[$i+1] - $vals[$i]) != 1) { $max = $vals[$i]; push @list, ($min == $max) ? $min : "$min-$max"; $min = $vals[$i+1]; } } $max = $vals[-1]; push @list, ($min == $max) ? $min : "$min-$max"; return join ', ', @list; } __END__ 2-4, 10-12

I wonder if Set::IntSpan can do this.

    Yes!! Set::IntSpan, I knew I'd seen something like that but couldn't remember what it was called!

    my @array = (2,3,4,10,11,12); my $set = new Set::IntSpan join(',', @array); my $list = $set->run_list; # $list is now "2-4,10-12"
    Now this... this is not ugly :-)

      I even love the way Parse::Range does it.
      Putting your original $list in the function parse_range prints out beautifully like so:

      use warnings; use strict; use Parse::Range qw(parse_range); my $list = "2-4,10-12"; print join ','=> parse_range($list); # 2,3,4,10,11,12

      If you tell me, I'll forget.
      If you show me, I'll remember.
      if you involve me, I'll understand.
