You'll get better replies on Perlmonks if you actually ask a question, instead of make a demand. You get especially bad replies if you just copy the text of your homework problem like this.
Must execute in reasonable time, answer does not need to be probably correct.
Oh good, because you cannot have both reasonable (i.e, polynomial) execution time and an exactly optimal answer to the problem you defined.1 This is exactly the NP-complete bin-packing problem. If you Super Search around this site you can find more information about it (I've already given you a juicy keyword to search for). I know of at least 2 modules out there that could help you to solve this problem.

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
