	I did the same. The rule says that if it passes,
it's okay. However, I have to admit that it's crass cheating, and
would accept any decision of not allowing this particular trick.

	(one solution would be to modify with a 
text file of, say, 42 lines, which would break our scheme)


($_,@.)=split m<[\d=[\]]>,"Y..0e0t0 =a0n0o0t0h0e0r= [P0e0r0l] "
 .  "0h0a0c0k0e0r";          y|.    |.   |s  ;
for $0(1..23)  {  $_ .='.' x s|  (.)[.] $|$
                           +. shift@ .|ex|| '.'   } ;print;
