I hate writing Perl that looks like Pascal. Oh well...
sub JDP::longest_palindrome # operates on $_ { my $pal; for my $i ( 0 .. length($_) ) { last if defined($pal) && length($_)-$i < length($pal); my $j = rindex $_, substr( $_, $i, 1 ); while ( $j > $i ) { my $s = substr $_, $i, $j-$i+1; if ( $s eq reverse $s ) # it's a palindrome { # but is it the longest yet found? $pal = $s unless defined $pal && length($pal) > length +($s); } $j--; $j = rindex $_, substr( $_, $i, 1 ), $j; } } $pal }

Edit by tye, change PRE to CODE around long lines, close FONT tag
