oiskuus last variant is 87 bytes long:

s!.!sprintf("%b ",2+index"etianmsurwdkgohvflpjbxcyzq",lc$&)=~s/.//r=~y/01/.-/r!ge

By assigning to $_, we can scrap the parentheses and the two =~, saving two bytes:

s!.!$_=sprintf"%b ",2+index"etianmsurwdkgohvflpjbxcyzq",lc$&;s/.//;y/01/.-/r!ge

Dropping the support for diacritics (only , and where supported anyway) easily saves another five bytes:

s!.!$_=sprintf"%b ",2+index etianmsurwdkgohvfXlXpjbxcyzq,lc$&;s/.//;y/01/.-/r!ge

With some shuffling around, we can shave off another byte: (note that this version prints a leading whitespace, while the previous ones printed a trailing whitespace)

s!.!sprintf" %b",2+index etianmsurwdkgohvfXlXpjbxcyzq,lc$&!ge;s/ ./ /g;y/01/.-/

Using a regex instead of index saves yet another byte, now down to 78:

s!.!XetianmsurwdkgohvfXlXpjbxcyzq=~lc$&;sprintf" %b","@+"!ge;s/ ./ /g;y/01/.-/

Finally, heres a 87 bytes variant that doesnt require the -p flag. Its longer by StackExchanges standard (where -p counts as a single additional byte), but shorter for, where you would have to write the entire 10-byte shebang line.

print+sprintf("%b ","@+")=~s/.//r=~y/01/.-/rwhile-etianmsurwdkgohvfXlXpjbxcyzq=~lc getc

I think theres still room for improvement.

    [usemodperl]: perl is not broken, perl is being broken by the web being broken by https, for the love of banking apps on free wifi at coffee shops or something...
    [Veltro]: Wondering, would it be so hard to write a small application that you can access using http which forwards the request over web ussing ssl?
    [Veltro]: are there not even tools for that?
    [usemodperl]: the breakage is so fresh i guess not, so it's up to us! :-)
    [usemodperl]: someone has yet to make that future famous free http to https proxy written in perl and supported by ads, paypal, patreon, etc to make millions of dollars a minute!
    [Veltro]: Why would this be fresh, I recon this is stuff that happens all the time (not Perl per se)
    [Corion]: usemodperl: I'm sure you could even code that on the command line.
    [usemodperl]: definitely

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
