Description (last modified by slelievre)

As reported at

the iterator from Combinations hangs.

This ticket is to deprecate it in favour of the faster itertools/combinations or IntegerListsLex.

IntegerListsLex provides the enumeration in *reverse* lexicographic order. So using this will break the code based on those rank and unrank methods... But using itertools should work.

comment:3 Changed 13 months ago by slabbe

copy pasting what I tried which creates lots of doctests failures because the ordering is reverse lexicographic:

  • src/sage/combinat/

    diff --git a/src/sage/combinat/ b/src/sage/combinat/
    index 3722147f14..c286895f83 100644
    a b class Combinations_setk(Combinations_msetk): 
    420420             [2, 4, 5],
    421421             [3, 4, 5]]
    422422        """
    423         if self.k == 0:
    424             return self._iterator_zero()
    425         else:
    426             return self._iterator(self.mset, len(self.mset), self.k)
     423        from sage.combinat.integer_lists.invlex import IntegerListsLex
     424        C = IntegerListsLex(max_part=len(self.mset)-1, length=self.k, min_slope=1)
     425        for c in C:
     426            yield [self.mset[a] for a in c]
