 Need Help??
For my first round of Golf at the Monastery, here's a non-strict, non-polynomial approach.
```sub assemble {
## Begin Golf
\$w=join'',@_;t("",@_);\$w}
sub t{my\$s=shift;\$w=\$s if!@_ and length\$s<length\$w;
return if!@_;my@b=(@_,@_);
map{t(\$_,@b[0..\$#_-1])}_(\$s,shift@b)while(@b>@_)}
sub  _{my(\$a,\$b)=@_;\$l=length\$a;for(0..\$l){\$x=substr(\$a,0,\$_).\$b;
return\$x if substr(\$x,0,\$l)eq\$a}
## End Golf
}

print assemble qw(GATTACA ATTACA GATT AAGAT CCC)
emits AAGATTACACCC
That's 248 by my count (less the extra newlines that I threw in to avoid ugly wrapping). There's a 20 character test that prunes the search space back, but not enough (I think) to make it a polynomial solution.

Update: This is polynomial after all. I was too lazy to work that out at first. Bah.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

• Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
• Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
• Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
• Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
• You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
 For: Use: & & < < > > [ [ ] ]
• Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
