Q2: see Re: Hexamer combination from 3mers. about Algorithm::Combinatorics. Abusing glob for its permutation/variation/combination abilities is a terrible hack that needs to be extinguished.

    see Re: Hexamer combination from 3mers. about Algorithm::Combinatorics.

    Understood. But that doesn't solve the "array of arrays, 1 from each" problem. A shorter version of the OP glob spec would be

    @x = (1..2); @y = qw(one two); @z = qw(Amy Bob); @xyz = (\@x, \@y, \@z); $glob = join( ',', map { '{' . join( ',', @$_ ) . '}' } @xyz ); print "$glob\n"; # prints '{1,2},{one,two},{Amy,Bob}'

    I don't know of a module that can emulate glob on that.

      Actually I think your iterator solution is not half bad. It could work very well where nested foreach loops are not an option.

      I'd drop the redundant array_limits array, however.
