in thread (Golf) Multiply polynomials

D'oh, I see where I was going wrong, I was reading it as [3,2] being 3x+2. Now I see ability to whack zeros with no problem :D

However, to nitpick, the 75 char solution (update above), isn't strict; you need to add 12 characters to strict-ify it. (my@m, for my $i, for my $p, my$j ), so to compare with the other solutions, at least mine being all strict, you're at 87.

update-fixed bad square brackets.

    Nitpicking some more, if you want strict I can give you 84 characters:
    sub p{ my@m=1;for my$p(@_){my@a;for my$i(0..@m){my$j;$a[$i+$j++]+=$_*$m[$i]fo +r@$p}@m=@a}\@m }
    And note that I handle 0 or more polynomials correctly. (The empty product in math is "1".)
      This must be under 5.6 or the like; "for my$p" and "for my$i" lead to interpreter problems under 5.005_02 (Win32). Bug or feature change?

        Um, bug. I was too glib.

        But that makes getting a strict version with a count of 84 a point of honour, right? :-)

        sub p{ my@m=1;for my $p(@_){my@a;map{my$j=my$i=$_;$a[$j++]+=$_*$m[$i]for@$p}0 +..@m;@m=@a}\@m }
