In stumbling across this disturbing writeup, the author claims that not only can the majority of comp-sci majors not solve the 'fizzbuzz' problem, but he's also seen "senior" programmers take 10 or 15 minutes to solve it:
Write a program that prints the numbers from 1 to 100. But for multiples of three print “Fizz” instead of the number and for the multiples of five print “Buzz”. For numbers which are multiples of both three and five print “FizzBuzz”.

I was quite sure I had already seen this thing. I thought it must have surely been in clpmisc. So I searched there and... much to my surprise it was actually a thread started by me! (available from Google Groups, too.)

Actually the requirements there were slightly different: to print "'fizz' if the number is divisible by 5, 'buzz' if it is divisible by 7 and 'fizzbuzz' if it is divisible by both." (Dor all numbers from 1 up to 100.) The best solution there was given by Jay Tilton:

print+fizz x/0|5$/.buzz x!($_%7)||$_,$/for 1..100

It can be directly adapted to this thread's "FizzBuzz":

print+Fizz x!($_%3).Buzz x/0|5$/||$_,$/for 1..100

And it's 49. But Sidhekin's solution, if amended with a newline:

print+(Fizz)[$_%3].(Buzz)[$_%5]||$_,$/for 1..100

scores 48, and wins!
