in reply to (GOLF) pearls and perl

My first round of golf, so be gentle... I took a slightly different route to get to the same solution:

use strict; my @p = (1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,1,1,1); print perl(),"\n"; sub perl{sub w{my$h=int(($_[1]-$_[0])/2+$_[0]);$"='+';my$o=eval"@p[$_[ +0]..$h]"; my$t=eval"@p[$h+1..$_[1]]";$o<=>$t?(($o<=>$t)==1?($_[0],$h):($h+1,$_[1 +])):undef;} my@r=w(w(0,11));my$v=$p[$r[0]]<=>$p[$r[0]+1];$v?($v==1?$r[0]:$r[0]+1): +$r[1];}

I count this at 237 characters. Hopefully I haven't violated any of the rules...

    well, it doesn't return anything when the pearl is lighter and it doesn't return whether the pearl found is heavier or lighter. good try though. i'm still examining the code trying to figure out if your overriding of the weighing breaks any rules.
