in reply to (golf) Interlaced Strings

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; sub interlace { ### ENGAGE GOLF MODE ### my@a=@_;my$z='';($z=chop($a[0]).chop($a[1]).$z)while($a[0]||$a[1]) +;$z ### DISENGAGE GOLF MODE ### } print interlace 'Ti sats.', 'hsi et ';

69 chars with strict on, according to Emacs.

Update: D'oh! Changed something and forgot to change the other part to match. Now is six characters longer.
