Okay, now 77 (if you don't miss the trailing newline):
$i=9;do{print"\n",map{(sort abs$_-$ARGV[0],abs$i-$ARGV[1])[-1]}1..9}wh +ile--$i

    74 :)
    $i=9;do{print$/,map{(sort abs$_-$ARGV[0],abs$i-$ARGV[1])[1]}1..9}while +--$i

      A for-loop is usually shorter than a do{...}while-loop. 70 :-)


      If you want the newlines "right", I end up at 72:

      $t=abs$ARGV[1]+$_,print map((sort$t,abs$ARGV[0]-$_)[1],1..9),$/for-9..-1

      Update: Well, what do you know ... the string $ARGV[1]+$_ is longer than the strings ($s=pop) and $s taken together. Make those 69 and 71 (both with tie-breaker at 30 different characters):


      ... and ...

      $t=abs,print map((sort$t,abs$ARGV[0]-$_)[1],1..9),$/for($s=pop)-9..$s-1

      print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},"
