Oh, I see: 100 - 001 is 99; 99 - 99 is zero. Now we've got an infinite loop. Just out of curiosity, how would you solve that? Your solution gives 6 (which is most likely right), I just don't see how.

    That's what the sprintf is there for. It formats a two-digit result into a three-digit string, eg. 099. After sorting and reversal, you get 990 - 099.

      Ok, I get it. I can modify yours than, and improve it by two chars:
      sub a { $_=pop;s/^..$/0$&/;/495/?0:1+a(-($_=join'',sort/./g)+reverse) }
