There's more than one way to do things PerlMonks

 Need Help??
255 characters, minus four for newlines. I could cut it down at least to 243 if it doesn't need -w and strict.

It's not beautiful, but it's much nicer than my first attempt:

```sub assemble{my(\$f,\$s)=splice(@_,0,2);return\$f unless\$s;
\$f=(sort{length(\$a)<=>length(\$b)}(c(\$f,\$s),c(\$s,\$f)))[0];
assemble(\$f,@_)}
sub c{(\$_,\$b)=@_;return\$_ if/\$b/;my \$r='';while(\$b and\$r=chop(\$b).\$r
and!(index(\$_,\$b)>0)){}\$_.\$r.(length(\$b)==1?\$b:'')}

Update: I see what the problem is. Luckily, a fix is even shorter. Here's one at 246 characters, minus four newlines. Removing -w and strict would put me around 230:

```sub assemble{my(\$f,\$s)=splice(@_,0,2);return\$f unless\$s;
\$f=(sort{length(\$a)<=>length(\$b)}(c(\$f,\$s),c(\$s,\$f)))[0];
assemble(\$f,@_)}
sub c{(\$_,\$b)=@_;return\$_ if/\$b/;my \$r='';while(\$b and\$r=chop(\$b).\$r
and!(index(\$_,\$b)>0)){}\$_.\$r.(/\$b\$/?'':\$b)}

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

• Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
• Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
• Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
• Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
• You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
 For: Use: & & < < > > [ [ ] ]
• Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
