in reply to Character positioning

Here's another way of looking at your problem that may suggest to you a possible solution; you've got a bunch of characters in a string -- the word. For each letter, either it's a letter that's been guessed, or it isn't. If it has been guessed, just show the letter. Otherwise, show an underscore. You may find that treating the word as an array this way is useful.

perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'

[marinersk]: I saw that you could post it on the Personal Nodelet, but you have to provide the content also. No way to auto-populate it. Not that this would solve my distraction problem...
[LanX]: there are template variables to "Auto-populate" it
[marinersk]: Yeah, someday I might become interested enough to poke around PerlMonks more internally. Most of the fancy stuff is way down on my to do list.
[LanX]: Yeah ...
[LanX]: no variable for votes_left
[marinersk]: Ah, well. I will continue to deal with it, as I have. Thanks for poking about, though.
[LanX]: you are welcome! :)
[marinersk]: LanX, your link to Darmstadt on your Home Node is broken.
