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) }
