in reply to TMTOWTDI Puzzle: Generating a range of numbers

perl -e "push@_,$_ for reverse q.e...q.n.;for(@_){$_=unpack(q|c|,$_);@ +a=split//;shift@a;$_=join q||,@a};print $_+$l,$/ for reverse@_"

This worked on Win2K 5.6.1, but dies on Cygwin :(

Update: It turns out that it works on Cygwin if the double quotes are changed to single quotes. Also, I noticed that I accidentally snuck a + in there :( Kinda like typing a story without the letter 'e'. This will fix that:

push@A,$_ for reverse q.e...q.n.;for(@A){$_=unpack(q|c|,$_);@a=split// +; shift@a;shift@a if $a[$[]eq$[;$_=join q||,@a};print $_,$/for reverse @ +A

Cheers,
