in reply to Powerball Frequency Analyzer

I thought I'd have some fun with this, so I tried it. I had to use the:
http://www.powerball.com/powerball/winnums-text.txt
source. I had to do a little alteration in the loop to read the data from site (needed \s+ for the split) and remove the possibility of power balls greater than 39 (can't pick them now). This solution is elegant I think but you all can comment:

foreach $line(@numbers) { next if ($line =~ /^!/); @data = split(/\s+/, $line); shift @data; # discard date @data = reverse(@data); shift @data if ( @data > 6); # discard power play number if there. $pb = shift @data; $powerb{$pb}++ if($pb<40); foreach (@data) { $normals{$_}++; } }

    Meh. This is elegant:

    my $content = get(...); my @accum = ( undef, (\%normals) x 5, \%powers ); for ( split /\n/, $content ) { my @data = split; $accum[$_]{$data[$_]}++ for 1 .. 6; }
    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      PerlMonks - have you ever predicted accurately?
