I guess this would be the hash approach you speak of:
#!/cadappl/bin/perl -w -Ilib use strict; use Data::Dumper; my @r = ( [ 5, 3, 5, 5 ], [ 1, 1, 2, 1 ], [ 2, 1, 2, 3 ], [ 5, 5, 1, 5 ], [ 1, 5, 1, 1 ], [ 2, 3, 5, 3 ] ); my %lineTo; foreach my $ref (@r) { $lineTo{"$$ref[0],$$ref[1]"} = "$$ref[2],$$ref[3]"; } my $start = "1,1"; my $curr = $start; print "$curr\n"; while (($curr = $lineTo{$curr}) ne $start) { print "$curr\n"; }
Output:
1,1 2,1 2,3 5,3 5,5 1,5

Title:
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.
