Outdated egg!

This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.

If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.

Combinatorics

Abstract

Combinatorics provides some mechanisms for iterating over, reducing and mapping permutations (ordered subsets) and combinations (unordered subsets) of lists.

Combinatorics supports partial, i.e. k-permutations and partial, i.e. k-combinations.

ordered-subset-for-each

[procedure] (ordered-subset-for-each f list) → unspecified
[procedure] (ordered-subset-for-each f list k) → unspecified

Iterate over every k-permutation (partial ordered subset) of list, calling f for its side effect.

f
The function to call
list
The list to permute
k
k distinct elements (default: n)
```(define ordered-subset-for-each
(case-lambda
((f list) (ordered-subset-for-each f list (length list)))
((f list k)
(let iter ((list list) (k k) (subset '()))
(if (zero? k)
(f subset)
(for-each
(lambda (element)
(iter (delete element list) (sub1 k) (cons element subset)))
list))))))```

ordered-subset-fold

[procedure] (ordered-subset-fold cons nil list) → object
[procedure] (ordered-subset-fold cons nil list k) → object

Recombine every k-permutation (partial ordered subset) of list, starting with a base-case nil, and calling cons with 1. a permutation and 2. the accumulated value.

cons
The combining function
nil
The base case
list
The list to recombine
k
k distinct elements (default: n)
```(define ordered-subset-fold
(case-lambda
((cons nil list) (ordered-subset-fold cons nil list (length list)))
((cons nil list k)
(let ((nil (make-parameter nil)))
(ordered-subset-for-each
(lambda (subset) (nil (cons subset (nil))))
list
k)
(nil)))))```

ordered-subset-map

[procedure] (ordered-subset-map f list) → list
[procedure] (ordered-subset-map f list k) → list

Map every k-permutation (partial ordered subset) of list using f.

f
The mapping function
list
The list to map
k
k distinct elements (default: n)
```(define ordered-subset-map
(case-lambda
((f list) (ordered-subset-map f list (length list)))
((f list k)
(ordered-subset-fold (lambda (v a) (cons (f v) a)) '() list k))))```

unordered-subset-for-each

[procedure] (unordered-subset-for-each f list) → unspecified
[procedure] (unordered-subset-for-each f list k) → unspecified

Iterate over every k-combination (partial unordered subset) of list, calling f for its side effect.

f
The function to call
list
The list to permute
k
k distinct elements (default: n)
```(define unordered-subset-for-each
(case-lambda
((f list) (unordered-subset-for-each f list (length list)))
((f list k)
(let ((subset (make-vector k)) (n (length list)))
(let iter ((start 0) (p 0))
(if (= p k)
(f (project subset list))
(do ((i start (+ i 1)))
((= i n))
(vector-set! subset p i)

unordered-subset-fold

[procedure] (unordered-subset-fold cons nil list) → object
[procedure] (unordered-subset-fold cons nil list k) → object

Recombine every k-combination (partial unordered subset) of list, starting with a base-case nil, and calling cons with 1. a combination and 2. the accumulated value.

cons
The combining function
nil
The base case
list
The list to recombine
k
k distinct elements (default: n)
```(define unordered-subset-fold
(case-lambda
((cons nil list) (unordered-subset-fold cons nil list (length list)))
((cons nil list k)
(let ((nil (make-parameter nil)))
(unordered-subset-for-each
(lambda (subset) (nil (cons subset (nil))))
list
k)
(nil)))))```

unordered-subset-map

[procedure] (unordered-subset-map f list) → list
[procedure] (unordered-subset-map f list k) → list

Map every k-combination (partial unordered subset) of list using f.

f
The mapping function
list
The list to map
k
k distinct elements (default: n)
```(define unordered-subset-map
(case-lambda
((f list) (unordered-subset-map f list (length list)))
((f list k)
(unordered-subset-fold (lambda (v a) (cons (f v) a)) '() list k))))```
