Sorry for taking so long to do this. I saw how to do it fairly quickly but didn't get time to write it up.

Fun problem. Figuring out how my solution works is also fun. ;-)

Incidentally the fact that you didn't want the empty set made life easier - I could just use the empty set as my "end of data" metadata marker. If I didn't have that, then I'd have had to use a less convenient API. (I'd have probably just returned array references instead.)

Note that I suspect a naive approach such as the ones above is actually faster.

#! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $iterator = Set::IterateAndSkip->new( @ARGV ? @ARGV : 'A'..'D' ); while (my @subset = $iterator->next) { print @subset, ":\tskip? "; if (<STDIN> =~ /y/i) { $iterator->skip_subsets; } } print "Done\n"; package Set::IterateAndSkip; sub new { my $class = shift; my $set = [map {[1, $_]} @_]; $set->[0][0] = 0; return bless { set => $set, }, $class; } sub end_of_first_run { my $self = shift; my $set = $self->{set}; my $n = -1; for (@$set) { if ($_->[0]) { $n++; } else { last; } } return $n; } sub skip_subsets { my $self = shift; $self->{set}[0][0] = 0; } sub next { my $self = shift; my $set = $self->{set}; my $end = $self->end_of_first_run; if (-1 < $end) { $set->[$end][0] = 0; } else { $set->[0][0] = 1; $end = $self->end_of_first_run; if ($end == $#$set) { if ($self->{started}) { # Reinitialize in case we want to cycle through again. delete $self->{started}; $set->[0][0] = -1; return (); } else { $self->{started} = 1; } } else { $set->[$end][0] = 0; $set->[$end + 1][0] = 1; } } my @result = map {$_->[0] ? $_->[1] : ()} @$set; # Need to skip the empty set. return @result ? @result : $self->next(); }
