I make your original 79 chars.

sub a { return$i if$_[0]==495;$a=join'',sort{$a<=>$b}split//,pop;$i++;a((rever +se$a)-$a) #23456789_123456789_123456789_123456789_123456789_123456789_123456789_ +123456789 }

if you are sorting single digits then perl's default alphanumeric sort will give the same result as explicitly defining a numeric sort. #71

update: just realised you can use $_ instead of $a. #69

    Humm, I just counted manually and you're right, it is 79. I wonder why this prints 60:
    print length("return$i if$_[0]==495;$a=join'',sort{$a<=>$b}" ."split//,pop;$i++;a((reverse$a)-$a)");
    Anyway, nice improvements, I should've caught that sort one : )

    Update:Ooops, thanks MeowChow.

      You're double-quoting the code, which means that the variables are getting interpolated into undef 0-length strings.

                     s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print
      And I can take it down a litter further massaging your code into this:
      sub g{ # 1 2 3 4 5 6 + 7 # 12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678 +9012 return$,if($_=pop)==495;$_=join'',sort split//,$_;$,++;g((reverse)-$ +_) }
      But I can't do one on my own... my own solution came in at 83 :(
