Hm...yours doesn't produce the desired outputs.

Given the following inputs:

1) "thisisthelongesttopicthatwilleverbepostedinperlmonks"

2) "this is the longest topic that will ever be posted in perlmonks"

Desired outputs:

1a) thisisthelongesttopicthatwille ...

2a) this is the longest topic ...

Yours gave the following outputs:

1a) thisisthelongesttopicthatwille...
verbepostedinperlmonks

2a) this is the longest topic that will ever be posted in perlmonks

Did I miss something?
