### Example Usage: my $Text = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"; my @Words = split(/ /, $Text); printf("%s (%d words)\n", $Text, scalar @Words); print "-"x100 . "\n"; foreach my $I (1..3) { my @Results = Combinations($I, @Words); printf("Found %d combinations of %d words from '%s'\n", scalar @Results, $I, $Text); printf(" (%s)\n", join("|", @$_) ) foreach (@Results); print "-"x100 . "\n"; } ### Actual Useful Part: sub Combinations { my $PickSize = shift; my @Elements = @_; my @RValue; my $StopAt = scalar(@Elements) - ($PickSize-1) - 1; return ([]) if $PickSize == 0; return ([]) if $PickSize > scalar(@Elements); for(my $i=0; $i<=$StopAt; $i++) { my $Element = $Elements[$i]; my @Rest = @Elements; splice(@Rest, 0, $i+1); foreach ( Combinations($PickSize-1, @Rest) ) { my @NewElement = ($Element, @$_); push(@RValue, \@NewElement ); } } return @RValue; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
