in reply to (Golf) Fragment Reassembly

For my first round of Golf at the Monastery, here's a non-strict, non-polynomial approach.
sub assemble { ## Begin Golf $w=join'',@_;t("",@_);$w} sub t{my$s=shift;$w=$s if!@_ and length$s<length$w; return if!@_;my@b=(@_,@_); map{t($_,@b[0..$#_-1])}_($s,shift@b)while(@b>@_)} sub _{my($a,$b)=@_;$l=length$a;for(0..$l){$x=substr($a,0,$_).$b; return$x if substr($x,0,$l)eq$a} ## End Golf } print assemble qw(GATTACA ATTACA GATT AAGAT CCC)
emits AAGATTACACCC
That's 248 by my count (less the extra newlines that I threw in to avoid ugly wrapping). There's a 20 character test that prunes the search space back, but not enough (I think) to make it a polynomial solution.

Update: This is polynomial after all. I was too lazy to work that out at first. Bah.

    A bit of tuning after reading japhy's Golf advice drops the score to 243
    sub assemble { ## Begin Golf $w=join'',@_;t("",@_);$w} sub t{my$s=shift;$w=$s if!@_ and length$s<length$w; return if!@_;my@b=(@_,@_); map{t($_,@b[0..@_-2])}_($s,shift@b)while(@b>@_)} sub _{($a,$b)=@_;$l=length$a;for(0..$l){$x=substr($a,0,$_).$b; last if substr($x,0,$l)eq$a}$x ## End Golf } print assemble qw(GATTACA ATTACA GATT AAGAT CCC)

[Eily]: BTW LanX, you should try typing a few random chars at the beginning of each message. This will prevent expansion :P
[LanX]: qwiud you sthink so?
[LanX]: zxwqbd good idea! :)

[Eily]: so far it seems to work
Your Mother reminds the monks they should be grateful not to share an office, lest they be subjugated to constant inanities like, "Czech please!"
[LanX]: what's strange is that the "Cowboy you said this already" message is missing #dqiwd
[LanX]: YM: BTW learn to mute your humanity
[Your Mother]: Cumin? Now I want tacos...
