Rewriting your code in Golf-ese, just to give you an example, could yield (without really taking into account all the shortcuts) in 166 characters ...

map{s/X/10/;s#/#10-$p#e;$p=$_}@c=@_;$t=$f=$h=0;while(@_){$s=shift@c;$_ +=shift;/[X\/]/&&($t+=$s+$c[0]+(/X/?$c[1]:0),$h=0,++$f>9?last:next);$f +++,$h=0 if$h;$t+=$s;$h++}$t
Golf code isn't meant to be pretty or even readable. It's meant to be compact. :)

    Ok last draft, including dragonchild's compressions and optimizations and correcting the case 6 problem which actually saves 3 more bytes.

    map{s/X/10/;s#/#10-$p#e;$p=$_}@c=@_;$t=$f=$h=0;while(@_){$s=shift@c;$_ +=shift;/[X\/]/&&($t+=$s+$c[0]+(/X/?$c[1]:0),$h=0,++$f>9?last:next);$h +=$h?($f++,0):1;$t+=$s}$t

    163 bytes which is basically 1/2 of the previous length.

    Thanks again dragonchild.
