( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

BTW, the above was based on solving the Sieve using functional programming techniques and then analysing what the computer ends up doing when that code is run and then reimplementing that in a procedural style. I find that technique often gives you interesting insights.

Anyway, I tried to reverse engineer what tilly's solution was from his description and came up with this:

sub sieve2 { grep{@_[map$a*$_,2..@_/($a=$_)]=0if$_[$_]>1}@_=0..pop; } for( @ARGV ) { print "$_: ",join(" ",sieve2($_)),$/; }
which is 54 characters. It is strict compliant "to the letter" but not "in spirit". But it is even more Sieve-like than my previous one (I just don't like algorithms where you give an upper bound and once you get there you have to start over if you want to go further).

    Chatterbox?
    [holli]: exactly, moritz
    [moritz]: with a big table of redirects to support the old links
    [LanX]: do it
    [holli]: well if you put some cleverness into the migration you can auto convert most of the links as well
    [LanX]: Let's Make PerlMonks Great Again!
    [holli]: but you know what? i don't think i'd fancy that. I like PM as it is.
    [holli]: Alone the chatterbox and everybody writes his own cb client tradition
    [LanX]: there was a guy who tried to steal the concept and build an own monastery ...
    [LanX]: yeah PM is very emacsy ;-)
    [LanX]: I think tobyink was on a good track with his redesign, pitty the pmdevs/gods didn't try to continue the approach of a modern responsive design
