The string posted doesn't meat the needs. Here's what I've got (84 chars):
sub checker
{
my ($str) = @_;
for ('00' .. '99')
{
my $n = 0;
$n++ while $str =~ /$_/g;
die "'$_' appears $n times\n" if $n != 1;
}
}
sub generate
{

+ 7 8

+90123456789012345
for$x(0..9){for$y(0..9){/$x$y/(/^$y/and$_="$x$_")(/$x$/and$_.=$y)
+or$_.="$x$y"}}$_
}
print "Generating ...\n";
my $test = generate();
print "$test\n";
print "Checking ...\n";
checker($test);
print "Ok\n";

Yes, I believe that your solution is correct. BrowserUK beat you by one minute and a bunch of characters, but you included a checker, and spotted my mistake (which I won't pretend was deliberate). Well done.I'm not sure I agree with your character count, as the code doesn't print anything. Replacing $_ with print at the end adds three characters. However, you do qualify for a 2stroke bonus under the revised rules for not using any 2digit combinations in your code.  [reply]
