NAME
Math::NumSeq::HappyNumbers  reaching 1 under repeated sum of squares of digits
SYNOPSIS
use Math::NumSeq::HappyNumbers;
my $seq = Math::NumSeq::HappyNumbers>new;
my ($i, $value) = $seq>next;
DESCRIPTION
This sequence is the happy numbers 1,7,10,13,19,23,etc, which are the numbers eventually reaching 1 on repeatedly taking the sum of the squares of the digits.
For example 23 is a happy number because the sum of squares of its digits (2 and 3) is 2*2+3*3=13, then the same sum of squares again 1*1+3*3=10, then 1*1+0*0=1 reaches 1.
In decimal it can be shown that for a nonzero starting point this procedure always reaches either 1 or a cycle 4,16,37,58,89,145,42,20. The values which reach 1 are called happy numbers.
An optional radix
parameter can select a base other than decimal. Base 2 and base 4 are not very interesting since for them every number except 0 is happy.
FUNCTIONS
$seq = Math::NumSeq::HappyNumbers>new (key=>value,...)

Create and return a new sequence object.
$bool = $seq>pred($value)

Return true if
$value
is a happy number, meaning repeated sum of squares of digits reaches 1.
