in reply to (Efficiency Golf) Triangular numbers

There is no need for the program to run very long. A paper and pencil puzzler will beat your 'running for many hours' program.

I will not post the solution here, but I will provide a link to the program. It's about 80 lines, but more than half of the lines are comments.

    I'm familiar with assigning to slices of a hash, and its use in this line:

    @seen {$t, $h, $r, $e} = ();

    was very clever. However, why did you use slices in these lines?

    @seen {$n,} = (); .... @seen {$o,} = ();
    Aren't they equivalent to:
    $seen{$n} = undef; $seen{$o} = undef;
    Or even just:
    @seen {$n} = (); # note the lack of comma after $n .... @seen {$o} = ();
    I guess its that trailing comma that looks odd to me.

    -Blake
    p.s. props on the @HIGH and @LOW generation... very sneaky!

      I used @seen {$n,} = (); and not $seen {$n} = undef; because I used the slice in the other case as well. I wanted to use as much identical syntax as possible, and didn't see a reason to special case adding a single key.

      As for using a trailing comma, all I can say is that using -w is useful. If you use it, you'll see why the comma was used.

[Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
Corion gives up
[Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
[Discipulus]: italian doc says to modify somehow the initial SVG before using it with D3.js
