in reply to TMTOWTDI Puzzle: Generating a range of numbers

Just a silly answer :). When men didn't have digits, they used fingers or sticks to count... ;-)

my @numbers = ( ['|'], ['|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'], ['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'], ); foreach( @numbers ) { print scalar @$_; print "\n"; }

    I just couldn't resist it... When I saw they used fingers to count, I immediately thought of counting candles...
    my @numbers = ( ['|'] , ['|','|'] , ['|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] , ['|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] , ) ; foreach ( @numbers ) { print scalar @$_; print "\n"; }
