in reply to TMTOWTDI Puzzle: Generating a range of numbers

How about a mysterious tack?

The first is my favorite, and doesn't remotely work under warnings or strict. The second is a recusive solution for fun. The third is the trivialization of both solutions.

#1 $$_=~/((((((((((.))))))))))/for length$"..length$"x($^F<<$^F).$"x$^ +F; print map$_.$",sort{chr($a)cmp chr($b)}grep!($|eq$_)&&/\d/,keys%:: #2 sub r{ ($_,$a)=@_;$;=join'',/(.)/,$_;print$",length;r($;,$a)if!(length$; +eq$a) } r$",length$"x($^F<<$^F).$"x$^F.$" #3 print $_ for length$"..length$"x($^F<<$^F).$"x$^F
Thanx for the fun,

update: d'oh, atcroft beat me to recursion...
update2: reformatted, hopefully it looks better

[marioroy]: Is List::Util::XS a core Perl module?
[stevieb]: corelist List::Util::XS says "List::Util::XS was first released with perl v5.10.1"
[stevieb]: so yes, since v5.10.1 :)
[MidLifeXis]: According to [metaperl:// corelist], Perl 5.10.1
Lady_Aleena blurbles. One of her favorite modiles is now in "maintenance mode" in favor of a new fangled module.
[MidLifeXis]: D'oh. Slow out of the gate.
[marioroy]: Thanks stevieb, MidLifeXis.
[MidLifeXis]: corelist Typo. Wow. Time to go, fingers are malfunctioning.
