Calling Sequence

Prenecklace(n, m, opts)

Parameters

n

-

posint; length of prenecklace

m

-

posint; size of alphabet

opts

-

(optional) equation(s) of the form option = value; specify options for the Prenecklace command

Options

• 

compile = truefalse

  

True means compile the iterator. The default is true.

Description

• 

The Prenecklace command returns an iterator that generates all m-ary necklaces of length n, in lexicographic order. The alphabet consists of the integers from 0 to m1.

• 

A prenecklace is an equivalence class of strings under rotation. The representative of a class is the smallest string, lexicographically, in the class.

Methods

The iterator object has the following methods. The self parameter is the iterator object.

• 

Number(self): return the number of iterations required to step through the iterator, assuming it started at rank one.

Examples

withIterator:

Create an iterator that generates all prenecklaces of length 4 in an alphabet with 2 characters.

PPrenecklace4,2:
