Hi bmcatt,

Ahhh - another friday afternoon and fine day it is for some golf.


#! /usr/local/bin/perl -w use strict; my @x = ( 4, 4, 2 ); my @y; my $i = -1; #56 chars with whitespace removed. @y = map {sprintf("XX%02d:%d",!$_?++$i:$i,$_)} map {0..$_} @x; foreach (@y) { print ">$_\n"; }
I'm afraid I can't offer useful advice on your algorithm at this time. I think I see what you are trying to accomplish and this approach seems reasonable enough to me.

Good luck,

P.S. I know this wasn't a golfing question, but I'm just in that kind of mood. I've never tried golfing before so be easy on me. :)

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.
