in reply to Finding missing elements in a sequence (code)

Huh? How do you call it? This runs fine on my machine:

sub find_holes { my @list = @{ shift() }; @list = sort { $a <=> $b } @list; my $low = $list[0]; my $high = $list[-1]; my %isthere = map { $_ => 0 } ($low..$high); $isthere{$_} = "yes" for @list; my @vacancies = grep { not $isthere{$_} } sort keys %isthere; return \@vacancies; } print "@{find_holes([qw(0 1 2 3 4 6 8)])}\n";

Prints:

d:\tmp\try>perl try.pl perl try.pl 5 7 d:\tmp\try>

[Corion]: I should write some more code for my Jekyll clone, but I don't feel like it, so maybe I should just let that linger instead ;)
[karlgoethebier]: "...mein enemy..."
[marto]: it has finally stopped raining!
[Corion]: marto: Heh - we've got the rain here, now. But it's only intermittently, not permanent. But funny that you should complain about rain ;)
[Discipulus]: rain? i dont remember it..
[marto]: and good news all round, Flash will die come 2020!
