in reply to Golf: Adding up array elements

This is not exactly golf, and works only for nonnegative integers.

#!perl use warnings; use strict; { my $adder = ' G s/^ *\([0-9]*\) *\n\([0-9]*\)$/0\1pm0\2nb0/;td;d; :d;s/n\(\(b\).*0\|\)[^0]*$/nb98765432109876543210a0123456789\2 +/; s/\(.\)\(p.*\)\(.\)\(n.*\1\).*a.*\3/\2\4\3/; s/^0*\(.*\)p\(.*m\)0*\(.*\)\(.\).\{11\}$/0\1p\4\20\3/; /m0*n.*0/!bd; s/^\(.*\)p\(.*\)m.*/\1\2/;s/^0*//; h;$!d '; $adder =~ s/;/\n/g; # some seds don't like semicolons sub printsum { open my $SED, "|-", "sed", $adder or die "error running sed: $ +!"; print $SED int($_), "\n" or die "error writing to sed: $!" for @_; close $SED or die "error closing sed: $!"; } } my @array = (1,3,5,6); printsum(@array); __END__

    Not golf at all, but an excellent obfuscation! :)
