  1. Use a shebang line at the top of your program, usually followed by strict and warnings.

  2. Use print to display text to the user.

  3. Use the diamond operator (readline) to read the input.

  4. Use if and comparison operators.

    1. A block starts with a {.

      1. Use + for addition.

      2. Use ++ to increment.

      3. Use == to test numeric equality.

        1. Use = for assignment.

      4. -

      5. > is an operator.

      6. < is an operator, too.

      7. Rather than using goto, wrap the whole part in a while loop.

    2. The while condition should test whether the loop should end or not. You'll have to adjust the algorithm a bit, as you can't test before you get the input, but the test is the first thing in the loop (or last, see do).

  5. / is the division operator .

  6. Use print again.

  7. Perl terminates once it has no more lines to execute.

($q=q:Sq=~/;[c](.)(.)/;chr(-||-|5+lengthSq)`"S|oS2"`map{chr |+ord }map{substrSq`S_+|`|}3E|-|`7**2-3:)=~y+S|`+$1,++print+eval$q,q,a,

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
