in thread Finding largest common subset in lists?
Close but no banana, unfortunately. Quoting from the manual:
...you want to find a new sequence S which can be obtained from the first sequence by deleting some items, and from the secend sequence by deleting other items.What I need instead is to generate a new sequence S which can be obtained from the first list by deleting some items, and from the second list by deleting other items, but only deleting items before the first element of S or after the last element of S.
For example, given this code:
What is produced is the list qw(a b c d f g j z). It did this by removing letters from the "inside" of S, for example 'e' and 'h'. Instead, I'd want qw(a b c d).use Algorithm::Diff qw(LCS); @seq1 = qw(a b c d f g h j q z); @seq2 = qw(a b c d e f g i j k r x y z); @lcs = LCS(\@seq1, \@seq2);
