I downloaded String::Combination via ActiveState's PPM, and produced this behavior.

I couldn't find the distro (or the author) on CPAN, but the documentation in the distro's POD seems to indicate that the combinations should be unique:

"From a set of n elements, given an integer k, the algorithm calculates k! * n!/(k!(n-k)!) elements that are all the combinations of k elements from the set of n elements. "

I believe Active's PPM just grabs "whatever will build" from CPAN, and doesn't do any other testing. Perhaps the C library that this module is the XS glue for is making assumptions about the machine it is running on?

Edit: Forgot to mention, you can grab Algorithm::Combinatorics or Math::Combinatorics via PPM. Looking quickly, I'm thinking that they are overkill for your problem, but they are an option at least.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
