in reply to Golf (Inspired): Repeated Phrases

Okay.... I was quite close with my original solution, but failed to fully test it. MeowChow pointed out the error in my approach; {$n,$m} will only match once, whereas I need it to match the whole range from $n to $m.

So, I just needed to add another loop, and voila:

sub repeated { ($_,$t,$n,$m,@p)=@_; for$i($n..$m){$t=~$1&&push@p,$&while/\b(?=((\w+\b ?){$i}))/g}@p }
So that's 83 characters long, with help from MeowChow's solution.

[LanX]: as long as he has votes left, the nodelet remains
[LanX]: There is a very simple solution ...
[marinersk]: Correct, so one workaround is to leave one vote.
[marinersk]: But I was looking for a more elegant solution. It appears noone online at this time is aware of one.
[LanX]: go to Nodelet Settings and click "All nodelets off"
[LanX]: SUPER STABLE!!!
[marinersk]: LanX++ LOL Yes, that is another workaround. :-)
[LanX]: strangely you can't disable the XP nodelet
[LanX]: But you can use CSS to hide it
[LanX]: and disoplay the data permanently in your peronal nodelet
