Since you're well past my meagre 59 (from the use.perl thread), I might as well show it:

$_=shift;y/0-9A-Z/\0-#/;(s/.//,($a*=36)+=ord)while length
Yes, no output-- the game rules were unclear that way, too. Using your tricks I can get down to -- 43.
$_=pop;y/0-9A-Z/\0-#/;($a*=46)+=ord for/./g
If only the null byte were legal in y///, then the above could become 42...

    Assuming that 46 is a typo...
    ($a*=36)+=ord # 13 chars $a=$a*36+ord # 12 chars
    But as you say, the rules are rather murky, so its tough to judge what qualifies as a solution and what doesn't.
