in reply to TMTOWTDI Puzzle: Generating a range of numbers

Not quite good enough for the poetry page, but it gets the job done:
my $obsession = 'Perlmonks!'; my @day; while ($obsession) { push @day, $obsession; chop $obsession; } print length $_, "\n" for reverse @day;
... or actually combining this with what Rudif did maybe:
my $obsession = 'Perlmonks!'; my @day; while ($obsession) { push @day, $obsession; chop $obsession; print scalar @day, "\n"; }

[LanX]: why do you think it's more than one person?
[Your Mother]: Because we are LEGION! Fix YOUR SIG SIG BLOCK!!!!
[Your Mother]: Forgot to sign in as my sockpuppet, how embarrassing!
[1nickt]: pryrt I am creating a Type to check valid user IDs, which must be a whole number greater than or equal to zero. I would like to disallow 1.0 but because of this behaviour, by the time it is checked by the constraint, it *is* an Int.
[LanX]: should this be considered? Re: Parsing .txt into arrays
[LanX]: and this Re^4: Hash user input
[pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
[pryrt]: 1nickt: if you are checking for valid user IDs, then I wouldn't care about the difference between 1.0 and 1: I would take either as a valid representation of the integer user ID#1
[LanX]: and this Re^2: extract column data
