in reply to Rosetta code: Split an array into chunks

A solution that'll be hard to map to a different language (except perhaps Perl6):
sub TIESCALAR{bless[0,$_[1]],$_[0]} sub FETCH{${$_[0]}[0]++%${$_[0]}[1]?" ":"\n"}; sub chunk_array{tie local$",'main',shift;"@_\n";}

[perldigious]: That's awesome erix. One of my work friends, who coincidentally convinced me to learn Perl originally, has a Finnish pen-pal. I showed him this and he immediately wanted to send it along to her.
[perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.
[Discipulus]: the photo was removed... Cyrano de Berjerac was not of the same idea..
[stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
[perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
