Ruby 1.9.1 Array#combination kinda lazy

C:>type tmp.rb
count = 0
combo = nil
(1…166).to_a.combination(5).each do |c|
count+= 1; combo = c
end
p count, combo

C:>ruby -v tmp.rb
ruby 1.9.1p243 (2009-07-16 revision 24175) [i386-mingw32]

[5, 34, 54, 73, 81]

Yeah…no one could possibly need to run more than 129 million
combinations, and…I’m getting kinda tired, so…yeah, let’s just
stop here.

WTF?

wfm:

#!/usr/bin/ruby -w

class Integer
def f!
(1…self).inject { |prod, n| prod * n }
end
end

expected = ((166.f!)/(5.f! * 161.f!).to_f).to_i # => 988455798

count = 0
combo = nil

(1…166).to_a.combination(5).each do |c|
count += 1; combo = c
end

p count, combo
p count == expected

outputs:

Just reproduced using 1.9.1p378 on Ubuntu. Looks to me like it’s not a
Windows bug, but something introduced sometime between p129 and p243.

Interestingly, replacing 166 with 141 produces a RangeError:
in `combination’: too big for combination

So this bug may be the same or related to
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/3089,
which is marked as fixed in 1.9.2.

Will follow up with ruby-core.
