in reply to TMTOWTDI Puzzle: Generating a range of numbers

Here's some typographical nonsense (from a long week-end):

s|^$|$^|s; s|.|.|g; s|\./\|\.$|"/".y/././.$"|e while/\./; s|/||; s|.$|$/|; print
And only one word before the final print (which can be changed to split to comply literally with "generate a list".

update: OK, here's one with no words that only works with 5.6.1 or later. (and now I really have to quit.)
s|^$|$^.|s; s|.|.|g; s|.|$`=~y/.//.$"|ge; s|..||; s|.$|$/|; print
update too Well, one more, now I really will quit:
s|^$|$^|s; s|.|"$\"$`"=~y/M_A-T_H OUT//.$"|ge; s|.$|$/|s; print
