Hi Monks

I want to divide a list of strings into substrings. Following rules should be met:

* It must be able to set together each string with a set of substrings.

* The length of each substring should be at least 3 characters.

* The length ($len) of all substrings added together (+2 penalty for each substring) should be as small as possible.

An example: The list @list should give as result e.g. the list of substrings @expected_substrings. The length $len gives for this example 46.

my @list=("set abcde-efghi 12345", "set abcde-ijkl 12345", "clr abcde-efghi+123", "clr abcde-ijkl 12345"); my @expected_substrings=("set","clr"," abcde-","efghi", "ijkl"," 12345","+123"); my $len=@expected_substrings*2; $len+=length($_) foreach @expected_substrings;
Do you have any brilliant idea how to solve this without using long loops with many trials?

Many Thanks

  • 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).
