in reply to Replaying Santa Claus Golf Apocalypse with Pugs/Perl6

Wow. This totally, totally made my day. I should dig up my past award-winning golfs and rewrite them in Perl 6 too... And make this a "golf-driven development" project. :-)

Say, are you willing to become a committer in Pugs and commit those wonderful example scripts under examples/golf/*?

    Yes. I'd like to add some tests and stuff too. It's only fair to warn, however, that I don't have huge amounts of spare time and there is a steep learning curve for me, but I hope to get there eventually and contribute something useful for a change.

    Personally, I find it interesting to give Perl 6 a workout in writing very concise code. That said, I trust that playing golf (or writing poetry) is not part of the Perl 6 design team's design goals. ;-)

      Invitation sent. Welcome aboard!

      I think Perl 6 design team has a fair bit of interest in golf too... Only they call it huffman encoding. Otherwise how can you explain that $h.readline can be written as =$fh now?

        Just in the name of Huffman coding: couldn't  my @rev = reverse $f.readline() be made indentical to my @rev = - $f ? That would be the penultimate step in Perl golf...:-)

[marioroy]: At the Fransiscan monastery, got stuck up high in a tree from pruning and the chainsaw with large branch fell and broke the latter, but not me fortunately. Was stuck there for a while until a firetruck came by.

[marioroy]: Back in HighSchool, I came late to Gym class. There was a fellow who was picked last, no team wanted him for racketball. So it was us two against everybody. I looked at him in the eye and said to let your body loose and let the powers to be help us win.
