Obfuscated code

( #1597=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Got some code which would take a Perl grand master to understand without running it? Post it in this section so we can stare at it in awe.

Word of warning, though: Don't be too cocky with your post — almost inevitably someone will post a reply that does the exact same thing in even fewer characters!

New Less than Readable Code

Set the new obfuscation standard
Title:
code@?#!:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":


  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [ovedpo15]: The only thing I know is that there is a comma at the end and a value after that
    [hippo]: Try it and see. Your computer won't explode.
    [Corion]: length will tell you the length of a string.
    [Corion]: But if you are parsing CSV, again, let me point to Text::CSV_XS, which you should use instead
    [hippo]: +1 for Text::CSV_XS
    [ovedpo15]: Im not allowed to use additional modules, so I can't use it. looking for a simple regex to do this task though..
    [Corion]: Ah, so this is homework? Then most likely, you should review your course material closer. It would greatly surprise me if the course material wouldn't mention the topics that will be used in the homework...
    [Corion]: I already showed you the simple regex to match the last part of a string without a comma in it
    [Tux]: Corion++ hippo++
