### Re^3: Challenge: Generate fixed size combination across groups without duplicates

I arrived at the same solution:
```use Algorithm::Loops;
use Math::Combinatorics;

my \$fixed_size = 2;
my @groups = (
[qw( A B C )],
[qw( 1 2 3 4 )],
[qw( yellow blue green )],
[qw( tiny small medium large gigantic )],
);

for my \$fixed_size_groups ( combine( \$fixed_size, @groups ) ) {
Algorithm::Loops::NestedLoops \$fixed_size_groups, sub {
print "@_\n";
};
}

I used you code for my own problem and it worked fine in the beginning but the moment I add another array to @groups the order of the arrays changes intern.I have little experiences with subs so I don't know how to change the code to make sure the order stays the same?

```my @groups=(
[qw( yes no 0 )],
[qw( yes all 0 )],
[qw( all stop 0 )],
[qw( 1 0 )],
[qw( 1 0 )],    );
my @names=('rscode','nonsyn','aac','splice','var');
my \$fixed_size=scalar(@names);
my (\$combo,\$count)= create_combo(\$fixed_size,\@groups);

sub create_combo
{
my @array;
my \$count=0;
my \$fixed_size= \$_[0];
my \$groups=\$_[1];
for my \$fixed_size_groups ( combine( \$fixed_size, @{\$groups} ) )
{    Algorithm::Loops::NestedLoops \$fixed_size_groups,
sub {
push @array,@_;
print "@_\n";
\$count++;
};
return (\@array,\$count);
}

}

It gives as result

```1 all 1 yes yes
1 all 1 yes all
1 all 1 yes 0
....

which are the right combinations but not the right order of the elements! Any help is much appreciated.
