One solution which I find pretty intuitive is to start with all zeros, and change N of thems into ones. Then the problems becomes "get all the combinations of three distinct positions", which can be achieved by using combination() function from Algorithm::Combinatorics.

use strict; use warnings; use feature 'say'; use Algorithm::Combinatorics qw(combinations); my $length = 10; my $ones = 2; my $iter = combinations([0..$length-1], $ones); while (my $positions = $iter->next) { my @data = (0,) x $length; $data[$_] = 1 for @$positions; say join "", @data; }
Now for the matter of speed, if it's really that important you'll have to benchmark, but if you're going to print each string then print is probably going to make the execution time of generating the string insignificant.

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