# Crate permutator

source · [−]## Expand description

This crate provide generic cartesian product iterator, combination iterator, and permutation iterator.

## Three main functionalities

- Cartesian product
- Combination
- Permutation

## Two different style on every functionality

This crate provide two implementation style

- Iterator style
- Callback function style

## Easily share result

- Every functionalities can take Rc<RefCell<>> to store result.
- An iterator that return owned value.
- Every callback style function can take Arc<RwLock<>> to store result.

## Easy usage

Three built-in traits that add cart_prod, combination, and permutation functionality to slice/array, Rc<RefCell<&mut[T]>>, and more.

## Unreach raw performance with unsafe

Every functionalities can take raw mutable pointer to store result.

## Example

- Getting k-permutation where k is 3 and n is 5.

```
use permutator::{Combination, Permutation};
let mut data = &[1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
let mut counter = 1;
data.combination(3).for_each(|mut c| {
c.permutation().for_each(|p| {
println!("k-permutation@{}={:?}", counter, p);
counter += 1;
});
});
```

- Getting lexicographically ordered k-permutation where k is 3 and n is 5.

```
use permutator::{Combination, XPermutationIterator};
let mut data = &[1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
let mut counter = 1;
data.combination(3).for_each(|mut c| {
XPermutationIterator::new(&c, |_| true).for_each(|p| {
println!("k-permutation@{}={:?}", counter, p);
counter += 1;
});
});
```

- Cartesian product of set of 3, 4, and 5 respectively

```
use permutator::{CartesianProductIterator, cartesian_product};
let mut domains : &[&[i32]]= &[&[1, 2], &[3, 4, 5], &[6, 7, 8, 9]];
println!("=== Cartesian product iterative style ===");
CartesianProductIterator::new(domains).into_iter().for_each(|p| {
println!("{:?}", p);
});
println!("=== cartesian product callback style ===");
cartesian_product(domains, |p| {
// `p` is borrowed a ref to internal variable inside cartesian_product function.
println!("{:?}", p);
});
```

- Easy sharable result

```
use std::cell::RefCell;
use std::rc::Rc;
use std::time::Instant;
use permutator::CartesianProduct;
let mut counter = 0;
let timer = Instant::now();
let data : &[&[u8]]= &[&[1, 2], &[3, 4, 5, 6], &[7, 8, 9]];
let mut result = vec![&data[0][0]; data.len()];
let shared = Rc::new(RefCell::new(result.as_mut_slice()));
(data, Rc::clone(&shared)).cart_prod().for_each(|_| {
println!("{:?}", &*shared.borrow());
// and notify result borrower(s) that new product is available.
counter += 1;
});
println!("Total {} products done in {:?}", counter, timer.elapsed());
```

- Unsafely share result example

```
use std::time::Instant;
use permutator::Permutation;
let data : &[i32] = &[1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
let mut counter = 0;
let k = 3;
let mut result : Vec<&i32> = vec![&data[0]; k];
// `result` can be share safely anywhere
let shared = result.as_mut_slice() as *mut [&i32];
// `shared` can be share as long as `result` is alive
let timer = Instant::now();
// unsafe statement may be omit because the permutation trait
// hid it internally. However, keep in mind that it rely
// on a pointer so every operation is still considered unsafe.
unsafe {
(data, k, shared).permutation().for_each(|_| {
println!("{:?}", &*shared);
// and notify result borrower(s) that new permutation is available.
counter += 1;
});
println!("Total {} combination done in {:?}", counter, timer.elapsed());
}
```

## Modules

A module that perform everything in copy fashion. There is no Heap permutation family function in here because that function family already return a slice of value.

## Structs

Generate a cartesian product between given domains into Rc<RefCell<&mut [&T]>>
in an iterator style.
The struct implement `Iterator`

trait so it can be used as `Iterator`

.
The struct provide into_iter() function
that return itself.

Heap’s permutation in Rc<RefCell<>> mimic Iterator style.
It provides another choice for user that want to share
permutation result but doesn’t want to clone it for
each share. It also doesn’t create new result on each
iteration unlike other object that implement `Iterator`

trait.

k-Permutation over data of length “n” where `k`

must be
less than `n`

.
It’ll attempt to permute given data by pick `k`

elements
out of `n`

data. It use Gosper algorithm to pick the elements.
It then use Heap’s algorithm to permute those `k`

elements
and return each permutation back to caller by given
Rc<RefCell<&mut [&T]>> parameter to
new method of KPermutationCellIter.

## Traits

Create a cartesian product out of `T`

.
For example,

Create a combination out of `T`

Normally, it take a `[T]`

or `Vec<T>`

to create a combination.

A trait that add reset function to an existing Iterator.
It mean that the `next`

or `next_into_cell`

call will start returning
the first element again

Create a permutation iterator that permute data in place.
Built-in implementation return an object of
HeapPermutation for slice/array and Vec.
It return an object of HeapPermutationCellIter
on data type of `Rc<RefCell<&mut [T]>>`

.

## Functions

Create a cartesian product over given slice. The result will be a slice
of borrowed `T`

.

Similar to safe cartesian_product function except the way it return the product. It return result through Rc<RefCell<>> to mutable slice of result. It’ll notify caller on each new result via empty callback function.
