Well, looking through tilly's previous golf entries I think I'll feel fine if length($my_code) <= 3*length($tilly_code).

sub c{($k,@_)=($#_)?@_:2..($n=@_[0]);@_=map{($_%$k)?$_:0}@_;push @_,$k;$k<=sqrt($n)?c(grep{!/^0/}@_):@_}
As for the lenght:
[arguile@cobalt ~]$ wc -L sieve_golf 104 sieve_golf

True to the seive, it starts at k=2 eleminates n*k, then steps to next prime and repeats until k >= sqrt(n). Instead of mapping to 0 I would have loved to just drop them -- not bothering w/ the regexp for cleanup -- but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how.

The subroutine is recursive mainly b/c I had yet to try that technique and this seemed like a good time to try.

Sample output:

# display procedure blatantly stolen from Tye 2: 2 10: 2 3 5 7 50: 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47 100: 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47 53 59 61 67 71 73 79 83 +89 97 169: 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47 53 59 61 67 71 73 79 83 +89 97 101 103 107 109 113 127 131 137 139 149 151 157 163 167

Thanks to Petruchio for his rewording of ($k,@_)=($#_)?@_:2..($n=@_[0]) so I didn't produce an error. So far this seems like a great place to learn programming.</fawning>


Scratched recursion and went w/ a conventional for loop, brought it down to 87 chars w/ strict compliance.

# non-strict sub c{$n=pop;@_=2..$n;for($k=2;$k<=sqrt($n);($k)=@_){@_=grep!/^0/,(map +{($_%$k)?$_:0}@_),$k}@_} # strict w/ less named vars sub c{pop;@_=2..$_;for(my$k=2;$k<=sqrt;($k)=@_){@_=grep!/^0/,(map{$_%$ +k?$_:0}@_),$k}@_}


No one else was mapping, and now I see why (75 chars).
sub e{pop;@_=2..$_;for(my$k=2;$k<=sqrt;($k)=@_){@_=((grep$_%$k,@_),$k) +;}@_}
