in reply to Golf (Inspired): Repeated Phrases

Okay.... I was quite close with my original solution, but failed to fully test it. MeowChow pointed out the error in my approach; {$n,$m} will only match once, whereas I need it to match the whole range from $n to $m.

So, I just needed to add another loop, and voila:

sub repeated { ($_,$t,$n,$m,@p)=@_; for$i($n..$m){$t=~$1&&push@p,$&while/\b(?=((\w+\b ?){$i}))/g}@p }
So that's 83 characters long, with help from MeowChow's solution.

[marto]: sounds fun, the opposite of my weekend :P
[Corion]: marto: You wrote Perl? Or did you have to work (and wrote Perl)?
[marto]: the fun part, I had no fun this weekend, very stressful :)
[Corion]: But I feel an introductory talk gestating, working title "Reading CPAN" - how to read module documentation, how to judge a module, how to read the module tests/examples
[Corion]: marto: Ouch :-/ The kids are making trouble?
[Corion]: Meh - food becons, and colleagues are staring at me, talk to you later, sorry!
