in thread (Golf as well): List of Partitions

Nice, now slimed down to 64 on the knowledge that the partitions are always sorted from largest number to smallest...
sub P{ [@_],map{my$i=$_;map$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_],P($_[0]-$i)}1..$_[0]-1 }
Saved an additional char because my map could be commified.

Scraping the barrel for 61:

sub P{ my$i;[@_],map{map$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_],P($_[0]-++$i)}2..$_[0] }

    Tilly, i would say something, but it would sound clunky compared to the beautiful code above. It would be nice if i could ++ you more than once for that snippet.

    One question though, what's commified? i'm not sure if i've ever heard the term...


      Here is what I mean by commified. Consider the following 2 versions of the same map statement:{"@$_\n"}@a..."@$_\n",@a...
      The first form is more general, you can put more complex logic inside the block. The second form replaces the block with a comma and shaves a character. Often you can shave a few characters off of someone's solution by seeing that a few map's or grep's can switch over to the version with the comma.

      Sometimes it is not obvious that you can. So sometimes I just have to try it out. As in the case:{$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_]}P($n-$i)...$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_],P($n-$i)...
      Incidentally the following version is the same size, but has slightly nicer (IMHO) output:
      sub P{ my$i=pop;[$i],map{--$i;map$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_],P($_-1)}2..$i }

[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the

[ambrus]: which is sort of a drawback compared to the ages of typewritten manuscripts representing content only to which the typesetter applies formatting, but that process required much more manual labor.
[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
