Here's my first _serious_ try ;) [depends on ord($/) to be 10]

including command line:
# 1 2 3 #2345678901234567890123456789012345678 perl -le'print-!$|*$a+++ord$/for a..j'
Generic Perl (needs $/):
# 1 2 3 #234567890123456789012345678901 print-!$|*$a+++ord$/,$/for a..j

So far, I beat japhy by 2 :)
Superior to me is chipmunk, who didn't only spot my mistake in the root of this thread, but also has a version that's 3 characters shorter than mine.
