Hmm. Golf eh? 88 strokes. First 99 19 values. Bleh. 99 takes too long.

Works under linux, Swap double and single quotes for Windows.

         1         2         3         4         5         6         7         8         9
perl -E'$_=1;while(++$t<19){say;my@a;push@a,length$1,$2 while/((\d)\2* +)/g;$_=join"",@a}'

Update 79 75 73 strokes

         1         2         3         4         5         6         7         8
perl -E'for(0..19){say$_=$t//1;$t="";$t.=(length$1).$2 while/((.)\2*)/ +g}'

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.
