Two questions:

• How many items are in the hash in the example you gave?
• Does keys actually returns a list in a scalar context?

:-)

keys in scalar context returns the number of elements in the resulting list. Whether this is magic in the keys function, or it's returning an "array" instead of a "list", I have no idea.

>perl -e"%x=qw/foo bar 1 2 3 4 baz bar/; print scalar keys %x" 4

 [Eily]: the demonstration itself is fairly easy. The number of paths on a node is the sum of the numbers of paths to the two nodes above (or one node above on the edges of the triangle) [Eily]: since the value of a node is also the sum from the two nodes above, you just have to demonstrate that the equality is true at the top of the triangle [Discipulus]: yes Eily, thanks oiskuu but i dont get it.. ;=( maybe I'll ask a SOPW [LanX]: all combinations with same amount of left and right? [Eily]: if you want to store in a structure with the coordinates as key, arrays might do, since the keys are going to be 0..n [LanX]: (Pascale path) [Discipulus]: yes Eily++ (very keen) I want to integrate my project with a 17th experiments. I want to colorize in sequence all paths [oiskuu]: Yeah, modifry the recursive func combinations() to return not the number, but the paths themselves. [Eily]: Discipulus I'd do that by starting from the bottom node I think. That way it can inherit the paths from the two nodes above (and so on, recursively)
