in thread Finding all Combinations

Indeed - I'm not as familiar with binary, so I'll have to ponder a bit, but thanks! I was working on this problem and was working on an algorithm that would iterate through all combos, but the checking back to see if you were REALLY done once you had reached the end of a set was killer for large sets (e.g. 30)...

    Change the while condition to:     while( 9 < ++$pick[$i]  ) { and the return statment to     return reverse @pick; and it will count in base 10. Perhaps that will make it easier to understand what it was doing.
