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

Maybe there is confusion about how you really want to go about this because the spec as given is ludicrous. You have four digits to work with which means 10,000 numbers available. Assuming only lowercase letters for example (like abc.html)–

perl -le 'print 24**3' 13824

You're already out of room with this most trivial example. Any real file names/paths will certainly not be able to fit in any translation scheme. The information must be *somewhere*. Your quest to save space by disappearing it seems magical. Pretty much everyone here is telling it to you straight.

If there is still a misunderstanding, perhaps you could give a concrete example of input (and its range) and output you expect. If what you want is possible someone will help you.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
