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

This is a program rather than a sub. It is 160 chars without unnecessary whitespace. I don't know what you are supposed to do with 1 and 0. Get another phone number I guess. ;-)
#!/usr/bin/perl -snl BEGIN{ for ($N) { s/[10]//g; s/2/[abc]/g; s/3/[def]/g; s/4/[ghi]/g; s/5/[jkl]/g; s/6/[mno]/g; s/7/[pqrs]/g; s/8/[tuv]/g; s/9/[wxyz]/g } } /^$N$/oi&&print
You can run it like this:     phonenum -N=7375 /usr/dict/words

I tried this with most of my friends' and family's phone numbers and none of them generated any words. :-(
