I love perl golfs, so here are a few tips if you want to try your hand at it:

  • y///c is shorter than length, but only if you are operating on $_
  • pop is shorter than shift
  • /(.)/ is shorter than substr$_,0,1. /.{i}(.)/ is shorter than substr$_,i,1
  • someone will always find a way to break your solution : )

    [stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
