in reply to Homework Golf
I'll admit up front-I'm no golfer, and the way some monks can golf code so seemingly effortlessly still amazes me. Having said that, I was still pleased that I managed to get down to 77 characters (all commands in the form of perl -lne '$code' /usr/share/dict/words, unless otherwise noted. Counts only the code in quotes, so if I mis-counted, please let me know.):
An interesting puzzle, McD-thank you for sharing it.
