Oh, I should have known there would be a thread like this one here somewhere. :)
Anyways, here is my best shot, as it were:
The result going into $r, this is 50 or 51 characters depending on if you count the semi-colon. Since this was my first attempt at something like this ever, I think it was pretty good.
As proof of concept, I did try some of the other variants aswell (you only replace the '36' above):
# Base 36, [0-9A-Z]
# Dec :)
Comments on how to not beat this one, but rather if this special path could have been improved would be appreciated. I was looking into some of the deprecated stuff about a split
in scalar mode going into @_
, but although that shortened the routine with one character, it also produced the wrong result by -36
, and with that fixed, it had lost again. :) Same thing with all my tries to get rid of that pesky reverse
