in reply to Packaging Algorithm

I'm trying to think of an algorithm, and this is what I've gotten so far:
foreach (@closefamilymember) { $gift = perfectgift $_; buy($gift); push @boughtengifts, $gift; } foreach (@boughtengifts) { $box->pack($_); } foreach (@notsoclosemember) { $gift = perfectgift $_; if (!box->pack($gift)) { $gift = giftthatwillfitinfreespace $_; $box->pack($gift); } } box->mail();

[johngg]: And it was loud - the only gig I've been to that was louder (painfully so) was Dr. Feelgood in a pub in Southend - awesome!
[marto]: Dr. Feelgood in a pub, that must have been a while ago
[johngg]: Yes, must be nearly 30 years ago.
