Roy Johnson,
I don't think this is right. It is my understanding that the results should be the multiples of the factors merged minus duplicates. If you change $iterations_to_print = 23 and @arr = (2,3,5), where is 15 in the results for instance? See Re: Hamming Sequences and Lazy Lists for my understanding and implementation of the problem.

Cheers - L~R

    I did not implement Hamming here; only merging of two list iterators. But I have just posted a lazy Hamming solution.

      Roy Johnson,
      Ok - my mistake. In fact, I completely missed the boat on the entire problem. I was so focused on lazy evaluation that I misunderstood "how do you generate the series of numbers composed of a given list of prime factors, where each can be used an unlimited number of times?" To me, that any positive multiple of any factor was valid.

      Cheers - L~R
