in reply to Mixing up da Arrays (Golf)

I can get 53 for the safe version (see the post by tilly for details), though with (at least) one terrible inefficiency:
sub Mix{ map{my$i=$_;map{$$_[$i]}grep{@$_>$i}@_}{@$_}@_ }

    What a clever inefficiency! I was trying to find a way to generate a list of numbers that was at least as big as each list, but failed...

    With ?: I can save some, and shaving with map$foo,@list tricks I can save some more. This brings the safe version down to 48 characters.

    sub Mix { map{my$i=$_;map$i<@$_?$$_[$i]:(),@_}$_,@_ }
    That matches what was done unsafely before. But unfortunately for sanity's sake observe the following 33 character entry:
    sub Mix { map{splice@$_,0,1}map@_,map@$_,@_ }
    I have written saner code...

    Saved 3 chars on the unsafe example, there is no need for a nice numerical list when I will be just converting the elements...

    UPDATE 2
    Sheesh. And the safe example can be modified to the rather bizarre 45 character beast:

    sub Mix { map{splice@$_,0,1}map@_,map@$_,@_=map[@$_],@_ }
    UPDATE 3
    I give up on shrinking this. However I have 4 variations on the key 33 char sub. In terms of efficiency of execution, the following wins:
    sub Mix { map{map{splice@$_,0,1}(@_)x@$_}@_ }
    So that is (barring the unexpected) my final answer.
