in reply to (Golf): Sieve of Eratosthenes

How about this at 45 (strict compliant too):
sub sieve { sub p{$_[0],@_?p(grep$_%$_[0],@_):()}p 2..pop }
               s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print

    I think that undef is not prime. :)

    But at 47 characters I think MeowChow still won't be beat:

    sub sieve { sub p{$_[0],@_>1?p(grep$_%$_[0],@_):()}p 2..pop }
      I had thought of that, but assumed it would slide :)

      Make that 46 by the way...

      sub sieve { sub p{$_[0],$#_?p(grep$_%$_[0],@_):()}p 2..pop }
                     s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print
        I had thought of that, but that goes into deep recursion if you call sieve(1). :)

        Oh, but tilly says that you may assume $n is above a fixed number. Pooh!

      Abusing the rules for fun and profit (46 chars):
      sub sieve { sub p{$_[0],@_>1?p(grep$_%$_[0],@_):1}p 2..pop }
                     s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print

    Unless someone improves on this I think I know who is getting the t-shirt for the main problem. If anyone comes within 5 characters of beating my solution - HAH! How about if anyone completely trashes the best I could do..?

    Of course the bonus question is still wide open...

[Corion]: :-D
Corion discovers a new shiny toy to try out over the (longish) weekend. Since I've done some more with websockets, maybe I'll try writing a webserver that implements hot-reloading of HTML(+CSS, +Javascript) in the browser. Edit the local file and ...
[Corion]: ... the browser(s) get a ping to a) refresh the page or b) reload "just" the changed parts, keeping the scroll position etc.
[Corion]: But I also have to look at how I can make WWW::Mechanize:: RemoteBrowser a reality, and how to make it safe from malicious content ;)
[Corion]: Part of wanting hot-reloading is that I think I've stumbled on a very simple set of CSS that I maybe want to use for a blog, but I want to try that out on mobile too, and I also want to add/modify it slightly so it has a header too...
[Corion]: ... and having hot reloading would make it easy to view the changes in multiple browser windows of different sizes, and on Android, simultaneously
