I ran into the concept of a Linear Feedback Shift Register so I wrote one:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; # Generate a closure that implements a Feedback Shift Register: # Usage: # my $fsr= genFSR( $bits, $seed, \&feedBack, [@taps] ); # my $nextBit= $fsr->(); sub genFSR { my( $bits, $seed, $code, $avTaps )= @_; return sub { my $ret= $seed & 1; my $b= $code->( map $seed & 1<<$_ ? 1 : 0, @$avTaps ); $seed >>= 1; $seed |= (1&$b)<<$bits; return $ret; }; } # XOR all arguments: sub xorList { my $b= 0; $b ^= pop while @_; return $b; } # Generate a Linear Feedback Shift Register closure: # Usage: # my $lfsr= genFSR( $bits, $seed, [@taps] ); # $nextBit= $lfsr->(); sub genLFSR { my( $bits, $seed, $avTaps )= @_; return genFSR( $bits, $seed, \&xorList, $avTaps ); } # Test the above using command-line arguments: # Usage: lfsr nBits Seed tap tap [tap [...]] # perl lfsr.pl 5 10 3 5 # perl lfsr.pl 5 0b1010 3 5 # Same if using perl 5.6 or later # Both of the above use: # genLFSR( 5, 10, [3,5] ); my $bits= shift; my $seed= shift; $seed= oct($seed) if $seed =~ /^0/; my $lfsr= genLFSR( $bits, $seed, [@ARGV] ); while( 1 ) { print join( " ", map $lfsr->(), 1..$bits ), $/; }

To make playing golf on this easier, you only have to implement a Linear FSR, and you don't have to accept the list of taps from an anonymous array.

So write a function that generates a closure that implements an N-bit LFSR with 2 or more taps:

my $lfsr= golfGenLFSR( $nBits, $iSeed, $tap0, $tap1, $tap2 ); my $nextBit= $lfsr->();
You may choose to use packed bit strings instead of integers (see vec).

  • 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:

  • 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).
