That actually has problems with large numbers (> native integer ?) Once it gets over 64 bits on my machine it converts to scientific notation... which throws off the conversion.

Never mind. Broken

Here's my whack at it - 232 strokes

perl -E'@x=split//,"4335443554366887798866555766";$_=<>;chop;print;whi +le($_-4){split//,"99aabb87780";$x=0;$x+=hex(pop)*!!$&+($1&&$x[$1]+7)+ +($2>1?$x[$2+18]+$x[$3]:$x[$2.$3])while s/(.??)(.?)(.)$//;say" is $x." +;print$_=$x}say" is magic."' __END__ 999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999 is 231. 231 is 19. 19 is 8. 8 is 5. 5 is 4. 4 is magic.

    Doesn't seem to work right -- ($1&&$x[$1]+7) adds 7 too often and !!$& has issues with "000".

    # 123456789_123456789_1 # onemilliontwentyfour # onethousandtwentyfour echo 1000024 | perl duelafn.pl 1000024 is 20. 20 is 6. 6 is 3. 3 is 5. 5 is 4. 4 is magic. echo 1024 | perl duelafn.pl 1024 is 21. 21 is 9. 9 is 4. 4 is magic. echo 1000024 | haarg.pl 1000024 is 13. 13 is 8. 8 is 5. 5 is 4. 4 is magic. echo 1024 | haarg.pl 1024 is 13. 13 is 8. 8 is 5. 5 is 4. 4 is magic. echo 1000024 | perl thundergnat.pl 1000024 is 17. 17 is 9. 9 is 4. 4 is magic. echo 1024 | perl thundergnat.pl 1024 is 13. 13 is 8. 8 is 5. 5 is 4. 4 is magic.

    Update tracked doiwn more details of the bugs.

    Good Day,

      I did miss some things there. You should still be able to eliminate the @_ from the pop though.

        Nope, outside a sub it will pop from @ARGV not @_

        Good Day,
