I believe you should put a ^ and $ to start and end the regex, which otherwise matches everything.
Since the search space is pretty small, one can answer the shortest ten question with a brute force search, observing that only binary strings match:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @strings = (''); for my $a (1..10) { for my $b (0..(2**$a-1)) { push @strings, sprintf ("%0".$a."b", $b); } } print "->", join("<-\n->", grep /^(0|1(01*0)*1)*$/, @strings);
That spits out
-><-
->0<-
->00<-
->11<-
->000<-
->011<-
->110<-
->0000<-
->0011<-
->0110<-
->1001<-
->1100<-
->1111<-
->00000<-
->00011<-
->00110<-
->01001<-
->01100<-
...

Title:
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.
