in reply to Perl Golf 101

This isn't meant as an exhaustive treatise on golfing, there are others much better at it than I. However, I was unable to find a good "howto" anywhere, and though I'd make a little one here. It's my hope that others better at this sport might share some tidbits of their own.

There used to be a nice and very extensive reference at, but the domain seems to have expired. I should have a local copy at home.

    < mtve> we with km forgot to pay for it in time, then it was freed and now it's taken away by those mo***s.

    From a conversation at #perlgolf, talking about yesterday.

    Yes, in fact I specifically recall that exact URL when I was looking for hints and tips, but couldn't even convince google to spit out a cache. If you could post your local copy somewhere, that would be awesome, as a relative newcomer to golf, I know I'm already starting at a handicap. :)

    $,=42;for(34,0,-3,9,-11,11,-17,7,-5){$*.=pack'c'=>$,+=$_}for(reverse s +plit//=>$* ){$%++?$ %%2?push@C,$_,$":push@c,$_,$":(push@C,$_,$")&&push@c,$"}$C[$# +C]=$/;($#C >$#c)?($ c=\@C)&&($ C=\@c):($ c=\@c)&&($C=\@C);$%=$|;for(@$c){print$_^ +$$C[$%++]}
      There might be another site that caches that sort of stuff - I'm trying to remember the URL tho. It's kind of an archive of pages/changes to sites over the years. If I come up with the site I'll post it and let you know (might be in my notes from a class I took a few years ago).

      Update: You might look at this site, It's an archive of internet sites over the years.
