### Re^3: Generate all unique combinations of 1 and 0 using specified length of "0"-string and count of 1's -- permutations

This is neat code but is doing far too much work because it permutes every zero with every other zero (and also every one with every other one). eg. if you run it with 2 zeros and 2 ones you will get 4 duplicates for each answer. Increasing the numbers just makes the problem exponentially worse. Try with 9 zeros and 1 one and you'll soon see what I mean :-)

yes thanks choroba and hippo, my code presented above is blatantly wrong :)

Can I add a %seen to repair my sin?

```use strict;
use warnings;
use feature 'say';
use Algorithm::Combinatorics qw(permutations);

my \$zeros = 7;
my \$ones = 3;

my %seen;

# this is really ugly
# say join '', @\$_ for grep{ !\$seen{join('', @\$_)}++ } permutations( [
+ (0) x \$zeros, (1) x \$ones] );

# a little nicer
say for grep { !\$seen{\$_}++ } map{join '', @\$_} permutations( [(0) x \$
+zeros, (1) x \$ones] );

Now the cure is worst than the disease, but runs ok
