 Need Help??
ok, so the 2^N terms are each a product of N terms, a[i][j], where j can be 0 or 1 and i goes from 0 to N-1
ie, each one looks like, say
a[0][0] * a[1][0] * a[2][1] * a[3][0] * ... * a[N-1][1]
So, we want do some binary magic.
```#!/usr/bin/perl -wl
use strict;
use Data::Dumper;

my \$N = 4;
my \$size = 32;
my \$arr = [[1, 2],
[3, 4],
[5, 6],
[7, 8]];

my @C;

foreach my \$m (0..2**\$N - 1) {

my \$vec = "";
vec(\$vec, 0, \$size) = \$m;
my @bits = split(//, unpack("B*", \$vec));
splice(@bits, 0, \$size - \$N);

# so @bits now contains the binary expansion of \$m
# with exactly \$N bits, as you can verify by uncommenting
#    print join "::", @bits;

\$C[ \$m ] = 1;
# now we multiply the \$N terms \$arr->[i][j]
# where j is the i-th bit in the binary expansion of \$m
\$C[ \$m ] *= \$arr->[ \$_ ][ \$bits[\$_] ] for 0..\$N-1;
}

print Dumper \@C;

note, \$size must be a power of 2, for vec to work, and unless you're on a 64-bit machine, it probably cannot be more than 32.

also, this works for \$N no more than 31(32?) - but you may have other problems (memory say), if you want to go above that.

Hope this helps.

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.
