in thread string diff and compare

Thanks jw!

I fixed the errors (my internet machine, and my Perl are on two different systems, and I copied it by hand...).

The optimizations are really interesting (still pondering it in awe...), I didn't know about @+ til this example. That makes matching strings so much better than having to pull them appart into seperate character arrays. The trick of using negative subscripts is really cool too. Thanks for taking the time to respond, it's little things like this that makes Perl a pure expression of algorithmic joy... :-D

    I fixed the errors

    Except for this one:

    my $longer = (@cold > @new) ? $#cold : $#new;

    Which should be:

    my $longer = (@cold > @cnew) ? $#cold : $#cnew;

[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
[marto]: some hardware/makey thing
[Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
[marto]: Corion, yes something 'artistic', so that or some music. Even combine some things, build a musical instrument :)
