I am workong on a school assignment that involves testing all the different combinations of array elements in @speeds. Currently I am using this code to do that:
use strict; use Math::monthly::CarClumps qw\count\; my ( @order , @clumps, $total , @speeds ); # speed of cars @speeds = ( 50 .. 59 ); # initialize @clumps as {0} @clumps = (0) x ( @speeds + 1 ); clumps ( @speeds ); foreach my $i ( 1 .. $#clumps ) { print $i + $speeds[0] - 1, " :\t$clumps[$i]\t( ", ( $clumps[$i] * 100 / $total ), "% )\n" } print "total :\t$total ( = ", scalar @speeds, "! )\n"; exit 0; sub clumps { my @cars = @_; if ( scalar @cars eq 0 ) { $clumps[count(@order)]++; $total++ } else { foreach ( 0 .. $#cars) { my $speed = pop @cars; unshift @order, $speed; clumps( @cars ); unshift @cars, $speed; } } shift @order; return 0; }
The clumps() sub uses a tree recursion model which is really slow (particularly on a 90mhz box). Has anyone had to do a similar thing and can suggest a better model for testing all the combinations of @speeds?
