in reply to Character Combinations

Why not use List::Permutor or Algorithm::FastPermute?
use Algorithm::FastPermute; my @c = 'a'..'c'; permute {print "@c\n"} @c; __END__ a b c a c b c a b b a c b c a c b a

    Permutations are not combinations. For instance - say I wanted to find all combinations of 4 character strings with each position able to be 26 different letters. This is what I believe is being asked for. I am pretty sure there is an iterative solution - but all I can come up with right now are recursive ones.
