Another solution...
### Example Usage: my $Text = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"; my @Words = split(/ /, $Text); printf("%s (%d words)\n", $Text, scalar @Words); print "-"x100 . "\n"; foreach my $I (1..3) { my @Results = Combinations($I, @Words); printf("Found %d combinations of %d words from '%s'\n", scalar @Results, $I, $Text); printf(" (%s)\n", join("|", @$_) ) foreach (@Results); print "-"x100 . "\n"; } ### Actual Useful Part: sub Combinations { my $PickSize = shift; my @Elements = @_; my @RValue; my $StopAt = scalar(@Elements) - ($PickSize-1) - 1; return ([]) if $PickSize == 0; return ([]) if $PickSize > scalar(@Elements); for(my $i=0; $i<=$StopAt; $i++) { my $Element = $Elements[$i]; my @Rest = @Elements; splice(@Rest, 0, $i+1); foreach ( Combinations($PickSize-1, @Rest) ) { my @NewElement = ($Element, @$_); push(@RValue, \@NewElement ); } } return @RValue; }

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