in reply to Can you spot the problem?

I wonder weather this code could possibly work in perl6, where the | operator will mean something else (see Exegesis 6).

    Works if you change the all the |s to &s. (Plus you can omit the parens if you're golfing, since junctions now bind tighter than comparisons. Well, okay, you can omit the parens even if you're not golfing.)

      I'd rather leave the |'s and change the comparison from "if ... <256" to "unless ... >255". That way the puzzle still works in perl5.

        I like making it all into one logical return expression, with no conditionals.

        Without the two character fix/spoiler:

        sub isValidIP { return (shift =~ m/^(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)$/ and (($1|$2|$3|$4) + < 256)); }
        Update: I wasn't offering a Perl 6 solution, despite the subthread my response was in. That would be
        return (shift =~ m/^(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)$/ and not (($1|$2|$3 +|$4) > 255));
