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?

[1nickt]: What do you all think of experimental = refaliasing ? Anyone using it?
[1nickt]: \my %foo = { bar => 1 }; say $foo{bar};
[Corion]: 1nickt: Would be great, especially for naming parameters in @_.
[Corion]: When you pass an arrayref, you get to treat it like a local array. But then, I'm cautious with the experimental features, because just when I thought function signatures were a set thing, there is a proposal to use sub [ $foo, $bar ] { ... } to ...
[Corion]: ... declare the parameters, instead of the more common sub ($foo, $bar) { ... }
