in thread (Golf) mobile phone numbers -> words

Hi tye, lost the plot in the translation from 3exp10 as I wrote to decimal. Register error. I failed to register my error!

To absolve myself from moronicity I will have to code a respnse now. Damn you (red baron)! I just hate it when people point out my calculations are a *mere* 50805 orders of magnitude off.

Despite that fundamental error the basic binomial point is valid. For any ten digit number we are most likely to find a solution from several small words rather than one big word:

For example, here are some 10 letter possibilities:

Colt Firearms: very-big-gun; rat-a-tat-tat; you-are-dead;

Perl Security: the-perl-kid; perl-hacker; naughty-boy; the-perl-man; perl-secure; now-at-intel; perl-busted; lawyer-crap; in-hot-water; im-ok-for-now; just-call-us; dont-foobar; we-know-perl;

Perl lyrics: p-p-p-p-p-p-perl; shes-my-baby;.....p-p-p-perl, I don't mean maybe.

Losing the plot: sleep(rand*28800)

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
