My submissions:

Hole 1 (16 characters)
sub f{ (pop=~/w+/g)[4] }
Hole 2 (31 characters) perl -e# -e# -e# -e# -egoto+TPC Hole 3 (46 characters)
If only alphanumeric data will be processed:
sub f{ $p=$_=pop;1while(!/^($p){2,}$/&&$p=~s/.$//);$p }
If required to support non-alpha, or unusual characters in the input data (requires \Q...\E), then 51 characters:
sub f{ $p=$_=pop;1while(!/^(\Q$p\E){2,}$/&&$p=~s/.$//s);$p }
Hole 4 (24 characters)
sub f{ map{chr hex$_}pop=~/../g }
Hole 5 (30 characters)
sub f{ $x=pop;map{$_>$x?$x=$_:0}@_;$x }
Hole 6 (39 characters)
sub f{ grep{s/.//}sort map{/[aeiou]/;"$&$_"}@_ }
Corrected hole 4 (returned string, wanted list).
Reduced hole 6 (@x=@_ to @_, used $& instead of memorizing)
Removed first 'version' of hole #5, which didn't handle negative numbers, leaving the longer second version.

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.
