in thread one-line split file sequence checker

perl -e 'for $c (sort {$a<=>$b} map(/.(\d+)$/, <*[0-9]>)){ ++$n == $c || print map("$_\n", $n...$c-1) ; $n=$c }'

Ah, that's getting closer to the line noise effect I was looking for, thanks ;=) Time to read up on that map command and why <> is globbing filenames in the current dir. I'm almost pleased to see there's no offered improvement to the basic idea. There's no way to get rid of that 'for' iterator, or the 'print'? -lane ? Any shorthand for sort {$a<=>$b}? Just wondering.

    If you're just golfing, you can throw away a few characters:

    perl -e 'for$c(sort{$a<=>$b}map/(\d+)$/,<*[0-9]>){++$n==$c||print map" +$_\n",$n..$c-1;$n=$c}'

    If you want to get rid of the sort, try an array:

    perl -le '@f=map/(\d+)$/,<*[0-9]>;@x[@f]=@f;for(1..$#x){$x[$_]||print} +'

    Note that if you have a file named '0', it will basically ignore it, but that was the original behavior too. This may eat more memory, but I doubt that will be an issue until you're working with millions of files.

      You can golf that a bit more:
      perl -le '@x[@f]=@f=map/(\d+)$/,<*[0-9]>;$x[$_]||print for+1..$#x'
        That @x[@f]=@f had me puzzled for a while, but it seems it is the same as:


        So just @f is always expanded into a list without (), and () is not necessary when defining an array from a list?

        I'm still looking at the next one.
