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

Round 1, 2 minutes

sub h{pop=~/(?:\w+\W*){4}(\w+)/}

Round 2, 15 sec

print STDERR"Can't find label TPC at -e line 5."

Round 3, 5 mins, Should probably use /s and \z but that's 2 extra chars

sub f{pop=~/^(.*?)\1+$/}

Round 4, 6 mins performance level inversly proportional to level of red in bottle

sub h{$_=pop;s/(..)/chr hex $1/eg;(/../g)}

Round 5, Back on form, 2 minutes

sub g{$m=pop;map{$m=$_ if $_>$m}@_;$m}

Round6, Took too damn long!

sub v{sort{eval'$a=~/([aeiou])/;$1'cmp eval'$b=~/([aeiou])/;$1'}@_}

Please sir can I have some more?

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.
