( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Update5: Thanks larryk for the suggestion, 77 now
sub Z{ @_=@l=sort{.5<=>rand}@_;join('',reverse@l)eq(join'',map{map{chop}@l}@l +)?@_:&Z }

Update4: Okay, last update, sorry (87 now)

sub Z{ @_=@l=map{splice@_,rand@_,1}@_;join('',reverse@l)eq(join'',map{map{cho +p}@l}@l)?@_:Z(@_) }

Update3:Okay, so I'm bad at golf :-) (now at 98)

sub Z{ for(;;){@_=@l=map{splice@_,rand@_,1}@_;return@_ if join('',reverse@l)e +q join'',map{map{chop}@l}@l} }

Update2: Using for(;;) instead of while(1) -- count = 101;

sub Z{ for(;;){@l=map{splice@_,rand@_,1}@_;@_=@l;return@_ if join('',reverse@ +l)eq join'',map{map{chop}@l}@l} }



Here is my shot at 102 using permutation trial and error, enjoy

my @ar = qw/NEAR LANE EARS AREA/ ; # @ar = qw/LINGO MILLS SMOCK IDIOM LOGIC/; print "$_\n" for Z(@ar); sub Z{ while(1){@l=map{splice@_,rand@_,1}@_;@_=@l;return@_ if join('',reverse +@l)eq join'',map{map{chop}@l}@l} }


Update: Added Mills Lingo :-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
