 Need Help??

Just in case performance is a consideration:

```#! perl -slw
use strict;
use Algorithm::Loops qw[ NestedLoops ];
use Time::HiRes qw[ time ];

sub nFor(&@) {
my \$code = shift;
my @indices = map { 0 } @_;  # First set of indices is all zeroes
my @sizes = map { scalar @\$_ } @_;  # Cache array sizes (optional)
my \$k;

do {
# Determine the array elements corresponding to the current se
+t
# of indices, and pass them to the closure:
\$code->( map { \$_[\$_][\$indices[\$_]] } 0..\$#_ );

# Determine the next set of indices:
for (\$k = \$#_; \$k >= 0; \$k--) {
\$indices[\$k]++;
if (\$indices[\$k] < \$sizes[\$k]) {
last;
}
else {
\$indices[\$k] = 0;
}
}

# If \$k went out-of-bounds, it means we're finished:
} while (\$k >= 0);
}

sub nForX(&@) {
my \$code = shift;
my \$n = shift;
return \$code->( @_ ) unless \$n;
for my \$i ( @{ shift() } ) {
&nForX( \$code, \$n-1, @_, \$i );
}
}

my %stuff = (
A => [ 1..1000 ],
B => [ 'a'..'z', 'A'..'Z' ],
C => [ map chr, 33..47, 58..64, 92..96 ],
);

my \$start;
for my \$pat ( qw[ A::B A::C B::C A::B::C ] ) {
print "\nProcessing \$pat";
my @keys = split '::', \$pat;

\$start = time;
nForX {
my @set = @_;
} scalar @keys, @stuff{ @keys };

printf "\tRecursive: %f seconds\n", time - \$start;

\$start = time;
nFor {
my @set = @_;
} @stuff{ @keys };

printf "\tIterative: %f seconds\n", time - \$start;

\$start = time;
NestedLoops [ @stuff{ @keys } ], sub { my @set = @_; };
printf "\tNestedLoops %f seconds\n", time - \$start;
}

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
