define "doesn't work"? it ran with many test cases for me..

update: downloaded my exact code posted here and ran it with the following games..

my @b = qw(X X X X X X X X X X 7 2); [rchiav@aps:/home/rchiav]$ score score is 286 my @b = qw(X X X X X X X X X X X X); [rchiav@aps:/home/rchiav]$ score score is 300 my @b = qw(X 9 / X 9 / X 9 / X 9 / X 9 / X); [rchiav@aps:/home/rchiav]$ score score is 200 and the actual example given in the description.. my @b = qw(5 / 6 3 X X 7 0 4 3 X 4 / 8 1 3 / 6); [rchiav@aps:/home/rchiav]$ score score is 146
If you could, please explain to me what's "not working".

    I bet that you are running 5.6.x and the code is failing to run in 5.005_03. The reason is that the aliasing was a little more aggressive in 5.005_03.

    Trust me. This is a bug I have hit quite often in golf.

    (BTW the current leader on the score-board is chipmunk.)

[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
[LanX]: I think it's a flag problem ... I'll produce a reprodocable example for SOPW
[Corion]: "flag problem" to me sounds like "contains UTF-8 bytes but was never properly decoded to an UTF-8 string"
[LanX]: not my code ...
[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
[LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
[LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
