It appears to be the index of the check based on length of the supplied password. You have 4 valid conditions that lead to additional checks; the 5th one is always invalid. Indexes 0, 1, 2, and 3 elements of the array of subroutine references he suggests will call the function appropriate for the length.
```    when (\$_ >= 8 && \$_ <= 11)     # \$index here is min( 2, 5), so 2
when (\$_ >= 12 && \$_ <= 15) {  # \$index here is min( 3, 5), so 3
when (\$_ >= 16 && \$_ <= 19) {  # \$index here is min( 4, 5), so 4
when (\$_ >= 20) {              # \$index here is min( 5+,5), so alw
+ays bounded at 5

TBH it's not clear enough to make great sense to me, but he appears to be suggesting that you put your ranges into buckets based on the formula he gave; for a length of 20 or more, you're always going to fall into bucket 5 (or perhaps element 3) of your array of checks. This is actually a pretty good way to determine a bucket, so then you can have an array of checks; or to make it more clear, a hash:
```my %check_dispatch = (
2 => sub { ... }, # or better, define in named subs and, => \&check1
+, etc
3 => sub { ... },
4 => sub { ... },
5 => sub { ... },
);

my \$pw = \$_;
my \$index = min( (length \$pw)/4, 5);
if (\$check_dispatch{\$index} and 'CODE' eq ref \$check_dispatch{\$index})
+ {
die if not \$check_dispatch{\$index}->(\$pw);
}
