Hi Stern, Do you really want to add a code-golf hailstone version here? The idea is to compare languages and try and use idiomatic programming styles, but -apart from this comment, I am way too biased against Perl to say much more. --Paddy3118 08:09, 11 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Paddy,
Not at all! As you can see, I'm new, and just got swept up in the excitement related to the recent proof. I checked the history and discussion pages prior to posting (and little else, I admit) and figured there are few contentious issues. I wasn't really aware of policies. In a way, I am glad to be shown the ropes. Turns out there is a precedent, if just one.
I'm an HPC systems manager and use perl5 a lot -- and just begrudgingly getting by with python :-) So, while admiring perl6's list construction operator "..." I figured perl5 can't be too far behind after all and took this on for amusement. If this isn't the right place for code golf, then by all means go ahead and revert - no hard feelings. --Stern 08:44, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
How about I use a sub-title of "Code golf" to show that it is one more of the few cases we have? --Paddy3118 09:50, 11 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
