in thread ASCII Pattern - Golf

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

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

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):

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

... 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)},"
