It contributes to the notion of perl being obscure and hard to read

    Sorry. :-D

    Here's my fun solution to the problem. It's not golfed, but is intended to show a different approach from the usual modulus operator based solutions. Instead, this uses a "generator".

    use strict; use warnings; $\ = "\n"; my %label = ( 3 => 'fizz', 5 => 'buzz', ); my $end = 100; my %queue; $queue{0}{$_} = 1 for keys %label; my $i = 0; while (1) { my($n) = sort { $a <=> $b } keys %queue; # "shift" the next genera +ted number while ( $i < $n ) { print $i++; } # print any "non-special" number +s before it last if $i++ > $end; my @why_its_special = sort { $a <=> $b } keys %{ delete $queue{$n} + }; print @label{ @why_its_special }; $queue{ $n + $_ }{$_} = 1 for @why_its_special; # generate the ne +xt succeeding number(s) }
    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
