It's a perfect idea, but your code doesn't work for 'dsdadadcccasdasd'. It outputs 'ccc' instead of 'dadad'.

    Ouch. Thanks for catching that. Only doing length / 2 iterations was a remnant from a slightly different approach I abandoned half-way in. I even tested the final code on a bunch of different inputs but somehow managed not to run into this issue… ugh.

    Sometimes I wonder if I should add Boneheaded Mistakes R Us to my signature.

[Corion]: $/ = "wahtever";
[Corion]: (it's a magic variable)
[karlgoethebier]: BarApp: whoami
[Cosmic37]: ok fankyou - I was wondering about that but thought there might be a redefine command or something; peachy
[Lotus1]: Cosmic37 if you undef $/ in a local context to a block it won't affect the global version after the block finishes
[Lotus1]: or you can just do local $/ in a block
[erix]: cool
