Hole 1 (18, or 16 if I can take a free drop on pop)
sub {(pop=~/\w+/g)[4]}
Hole 2 (24 in tcsh)
perl -e'\ \ \ goto\ TPC'
Which has been said before, to be sure.
Hole 3 (20)
sub {pop=~/^(.+?)\1+$/;$1}
which takes a 1-stroke penalty for the lack of /s, and one for $ instead of \Z. Oh well.
Hole 4 (19)
sub {split//,pack"H*",@_}
or
sub {map{chr hex}pop=~/../g}
for one more stroke and a warmer fuzzier feeling (since I actually got that one done in the time limit).
Hole 5 (30)
sub {$a=pop;for(@_){$a>$_ or$a=$_}$a}
I think this is optimal for Perl 5.004 (tilly can do it better with a more recent revision, I know.)
Hole 6 (44)
sub {sub F{pop=~/[aeiou]/;$&}sort{F($a)cmp F$b}@_}
Which is not as cool as some, but is the best I could do without reading the thread.
This gives me an overall score of 155 for six holes, which I think is respectable...

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.
