... extemporaneous coding ... “implementation left as an exercise to the reader.”

I understand. But given my perception of the relative inexperience of Rahul Gupta WRT Perl coding, and of the relatively subtle nature of the bug and its manifestation, I wanted to be very explicit about the problen I saw.

I did not separately test it to see if it would actually run.

My own experience with the excellent advice I customarily dispense is that it always works — except when I don't test it, and then, for some reason, it never works! That's why I always try to provide a "complete input-execution-output experience", usually in the form of some kind of command-line capture. That way, there's no question about execution conditions, code, data, etc... Caveat praeceptor.
