Um, the perl -nle'' count as 11? If so:

42
(Lowercase dictionary.)

perl -lnE'unpack("%a*")-65-96*length||say'
45
(Lowercase dictionary.)
perl -lne'65+length()*96-unpack"%a*"or print'
50
perl -lne'65+length()*96-unpack"%a*",lc or print'

Note: I added the say version following Athanasius's example.

Dec 05: x-d the readmore tags. Once more as above, using Abigail's Horror:

#23456789_123456789_123456789_123456789_ perl -lnE'65+96*y///c-unpack"%a*"or say'

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      And now I have to live the rest of my life knowing what that is, so thanks for that.

    Which can be shortened to modern perl:

    36 perl -nE'65+length()*96-unpack"%a*",lc or say'

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
      Except... -l option is necessary for otherwise \n is a problem.

      Update: Tux(20+21+24) == 65 :-)

      I love this one. Took me ten minutes and a command line to take it apart and grok it. Awesome.
