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
