in thread Friday Golf: All 2-digit combinations

62? (Does anyone have a neat one liner for verifying this? trying to check the results is doing my eyes in:)

$_=$n='00';/$n/ or$_.=$n and s/(.)\1\1/$1$1/while$n++<99;print
123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123

58!
$_=$n='00';/$n/ or$_.=$n,s/(.)(?=\1\1)//while$n++<99;print
123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123

If I understand your problem, I can solve it! Of course, the same can be said for you.

    Congratz! Though, I think your algorithm works only because of a peculiarity in 00..99. If you extend it to 000..999, your algorithm doesn't scale, while mine does. :-)

    I believe that is the first correct solution! Congratulations, let the ++'s flow!
