in reply to (golf) Interlaced Strings

I apparently just beat out premchai21, the current leader, by one character:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; print j('Ti sats','hri et'),"\n"; sub j { my($a,$b)=@_;$a=~s/(.)/$1.substr($b,length($`),1)/ge;return$a; }

62 characters.

Update: Same basic idea as japhy had, but worse execution. Ahh, well.

Update 2: After seeing japhy's code, I can whittle it down to 40 chars. All credit for the idea goes to japhy, though:

sub j { $_=pop;@_=split//,pop;s/./shift.$&/eg;$_ }

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
[Corion]: Ah, how I missed it. After some years, I revisit slashdot on a click-bait link, and it provides the usual humor instantly: "I didn't know Drupal had rules for sex. It must be a plug-in"
[Corion]: erix: This is not for sybase, but for the input data files, resp. their contents.
