 Need Help??

Sometimes the rule S(n,k) = 0 if k>n is given for completeness

VERY important if you dont realize n elements ... k non-empty subsets and you just start with

```
for \$n (0..10) {
for \$k (0..10) {
print "\$n \$k '.fs(\$n,\$k)."\n";
}
}

```use strict; use warnings;

my \$l='k ';
\$l.=sprintf "%3d ",0;
for my \$k (0..10){
\$l.=sprintf " %10s",\$k;
}
print \$l."\n";
\$l=~s/./-/g;
print \$l."\n";

for my \$n (0..10){
printf "n %3d ",\$n;
for my \$k (0..10){
printf " %10s",fs(\$n,\$k);
}
print "\n";
}

sub fs {
my \$n=shift;
my \$k=shift;

if ( \$n ==0 && \$k == 0 ) {return 1};
if ( \$k > \$n ) {return 0};           # important
if ( \$n > 0 && \$k == 0 ) {return 0}
if ( \$k == 1 )            {return 1}
if (\$n == \$k )           {return 1}
my \$p1=fs(\$n-1,\$k-1);
my \$p2=fs(\$n-1,\$k  );
return \$p1 + (\$k*\$p2);
}
And i learned never to name my subroutines s
```use strict; use warnings;

my \$l='k ';
\$l.=sprintf "%3d ",0;
for my \$k (0..10){
\$l.=sprintf " %10s",\$k;
}
print \$l."\n";
\$l=~s/./-/g;
print \$l."\n";

for my \$n (0..10){
printf "n %3d ",\$n;
for my \$k (0..10){
printf " %10s",s(\$n,\$k);
}
print "\n";
}

sub s {
my \$n=shift;
my \$k=shift;

if ( \$n ==0 && \$k == 0 ) {return 1};
if ( \$k > \$n ) {return 0};           # important
if ( \$n > 0 && \$k == 0 ) {return 0}
if ( \$k == 1 )            {return 1}
if (\$n == \$k )           {return 1}
my \$p1=s(\$n-1,\$k-1);
my \$p2=s(\$n-1,\$k  );
return \$p1 + (\$k*\$p2);
}
output

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.
