Math::NumSeq::ReReplace -- sequence of repeated replacements
use Math::NumSeq::ReReplace; my $seq = Math::NumSeq::ReReplace->new; my ($i, $value) = $seq->next;
This is a sequence by David Madore formed by repeatedly replacing every N'th occurrence of a term with N.
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 3, 1, 2, 4, 4, 3, 4, ...
stage => $n parameter limits the replacements to a given number of stages of the algorithm. The default -1 means unlimited.
The generating procedure begins with all 1s,
stage 0: 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,...
Then every second 1 is changed to 2
stage 1: 1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,...
Then every third 1 is changed to 3, and every third 2 changed to 3 also,
stage 2: 1,2,1,2,3,3,1,2,1,2,3,3,...
Then every fourth 1 becomes 4, fourth 2 becomes 4, fourth 3 becomes 4.
stage 3: 1,2,1,2,3,3,1,2,4,4,3,4,...
The replacement of N at every Nth is applied separately to the 1s, 2s, 3s etc remaining at each stage.
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.
$seq = Math::NumSeq::ReReplace->new ()
Create and return a new sequence object.
$bool = $seq->pred($value)
Return true if
$valueoccurs in the sequence. This merely means integer
$value >= 1.
