in thread Hamming Sequences and Lazy Lists

The number 1 = 2**0 * 3**0 * 5**0, so it is a legitimate part of the series, not just a seed to be stripped off. It is part of the answer produced by the Haskell genHam above. Otherwise, your generator looks great and the output checks with the Haskell one.

    Ok, well here it is, corrected for that, and without using coderefs for streams. I realized there really wasn't much point to that. All I really need to know is what my multiplier is, and which element of the output stream I'm looking at.
    use strict; use warnings; sub lazy_ham { my ($how_many) = @_; my @output_stream = (1); my @streams = map [$_,0], (2, 3, 5); for (@output_stream+1..$how_many) { # Find the lowest next item in the available streams my @peeks = map {$output_stream[$_->[1]] * $_->[0]} @streams; my ($lowest) = sort {$a <=> $b} @peeks; $peeks[$_] == $lowest and $streams[$_][1]++ for 0..$#streams; push(@output_stream, $lowest); } @output_stream; } print join(', ', lazy_ham(80)), "\n";
