I considered this recursive approach too but never got anything
decent.  The rules were maybe slightly vague on this intricacy, but
couldn't you have shaved two off with this?


It would have passed the test program, and run fine from the
command-line via `perl', but not via `./' :-)
Don't know whether the judges would have accepted it.
