A poor data Drone, being pulled in many directions at once. Forced to code in Korn, c, c++ and even (GASP!) Java instead of his beloved Perl. Favorite project du jour: Given N groups of objects of three different types that have a numerical quantity of sub-objects. Each group containing up to 20 objects. Determine the optimum combination of 'objects' from one group with objects from another group, such that the numerical quantities of sub-objects in each group matches as close as possible. The count of sub-objects varies in some form of distribution.
