I thought the general consensus was that we would help people if they had a try at it. He posted code that works, and asked for a better way to do it. I don't see what's so bad about teaching him to do it better (as opposed to at all). map and grep aren't immediately intuitive unless you are already seeped in lisp.

Why not just tell him to put the conditional into a grep statement and it will spit out the right hashes? It hardly takes more effort than blowing him off. As an added bonus, less people will think that you are a grumpy loser monk.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
