This is just a variation on partitions where the size of the parts is restricted to a finite set of values. I've adapted some partition code that I had lying around:
#! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @parts = (100, 50, 20, 10, 5, 1); sub partitions { my $n = shift; return partmax($n, $n) }; sub partmax { my ($n, $maxpart) = @_; return [] if $n < 0; return [[]] if $n == 0; my $partitions = []; foreach my $part (grep {$_<=$maxpart} @parts) { my $subpartitions = partmax($n - $part, $part); foreach (@$subpartitions) { unshift @$_, $part; } push @$partitions, @$subpartitions; } return $partitions; } my $example = partitions shift; print "count: ", scalar @$example, "\n"; foreach my $partition (@$example) { print join(" ", @$partition), "\n"; }

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