in reply to 1-D Cellular Automata

Sierpinski sieve:
#!/usr/bin/perl -wl $_="co"; while (1) { s/..(?=c)/$&^"CO"/eg; s/^/ /; print; }
Now, why does this work? Because binom(m, n)(mod 2) = n XOR m, so this is just Pascal's triangle (mod 2).

Update: Will work now.

    why does this work?

    It doesn't, at least, not with 5.6.1, or 5.005_03.

    Does it need 5.8?

    Edit: As petral points out, the regex will never match. I should have noticed that myself, instead of just trying the code...

      $_="co" will never match /..(?=c)/.
