Thanks, BrowserUk!

Very cool code but harder to understand for me...I ran it and got the results as expected, with a tiny 'bug'. When I passed it the string "this is a very long sentence without spaces in between", the shortened string was "this is a very long ..." (no problem there).

When I passed it the string "thisisaverylongsentencewithoutspacesinbetween", the output was "thisisaverylongsentencewith..." i.e. without any space between the last character of that string and '...'.

Nothing serious really but just thought I would bring it up.

    [shmem]: of course
    [shmem]: the members of @another_array are conflated to @array
    [shmem]: try it out:
    [Lady_Aleena]: shmem, thanks. I'm am way out of practice.
    [shmem]: perl -lE '@foo = (0..3);@bar = (4..7); push @foo,@bar; say for @foo'
    [Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I feel like an idiot for forgetting something so basic.
    shmem puts a big cauldron of "silly con charme" on the table in the refectorium
    [reisinge]: 'push @foo, @bar' is the same as '@foo = (@foo ,@bar)' ?
