Just another example of a conversion (using the boilerplate recipe). I'm posting mostly so it will be here to refer back to if I revisit the topic. It's interestingly different from the other examples, and the recipe still works well (although I get a curious Use of uninitialized value in array element warning if I don't turn those warnings off (which I do, below)).

What I'm generating is permutations, like Algorithm::Loops NextPermute.

#!perl use strict; use warnings; sub no_repeat_combos { return [@_] unless @_ > 1; # Find the first occurrence of each unique element my %seen; defined($seen{$_[$_]}) or $seen{$_[$_]} = $_ for 0..$#_; # For each unique element, stick it on the front of each # of the no-repeat-combos of the rest map { my $first_pos = $_; my @rest = @_[ grep {$first_pos != $_} 0..$#_ ]; map [$_[$first_pos], @$_], no_repeat_combos(@rest); } (sort {$a <=> $b} values %seen); } sub nrc_iter { # Base cases get assigned to an array, which the iterator shifts t +hrough my @base_case = ([@_]); return sub{ shift @base_case } unless @_ > 1; # Find the first occurrence of each unique element my %seen; defined($seen{$_[$_]}) or $seen{$_[$_]} = $_ for 0..$#_; # For each unique element, stick it on the front of each # of the no-repeat-combos of the rest my @arg_list = @_; my @sub_iter = map { my $first_pos = $_; my @rest = @_[ grep {$first_pos != $_} 0..$#_ ]; sub { my $recurse = nrc_iter(@rest); my $set; no warnings 'uninitialized'; sub { ($set = $recurse->()) ? [$arg_list[$first_pos], @$set] + : () } } } sort {$a <=> $b} values %seen; # Below here is boilerplate: if you've done the above steps right, + just plug # this in, and it works. It returns the first iterator from the li +st that # returns anything. # Grab and unwrap an iterator from the list my $iter = (shift @sub_iter)->(); return sub { my $rval; $iter = (shift @sub_iter)->() until ($rval = $iter->() or @sub_iter == 0); return $rval; } } for ([1], [1,1], [1,2], [qw(a b a)], [qw(a b b a)]) { print "=== @$_ ===\n"; my $i = nrc_iter(@$_); print " @$_\n" while $_ = $i->(); }

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.
