Oo welcome. Oo vudge welcome.

[ #505 ]
I finally have my own journal. I'll use it to make occasional notes on Perl things that I'm working on.

Yesterday I released Want 0.03. It's my attempt to implement most of RFC 21 for Perl 5, along with any other related features which seem cool or useful.

Recently I discovered the Johnson-Trotter algorithm for generating all the permutations of a list. It's a cool algorithm which goes from one permutation to the next by swapping a single pair of adjacent elements, mostly in constant time. I might put a bit of code here to illustrate how it works.
