 Need Help??
Ok, here's my current solution at 192 chars.
```sub a{\$#_?(sort{length\$a<=>length\$b}map{my\$s=\$_;my@l=grep{\$s ne \$_}@_;
+map{my\$t=\$_;my@m=grep{\$t ne \$_}@l;a(i(\$s,\$t),@m)}@l}@_)[0]:pop}
sub i{(\$_,\$t)=@_;chop\$t while!s/\Q\$t\E\$/\$_[1]/&&''ne\$t;\$_;}

print a qw(logger gerbil log analog);
print "\n";
print a qw(GATTACA ATTACA GATT AAGAT CCC);
update1: trimmed another 4 chars from the i sub, and stopped clobbering globals:
```sub i{my(\$s,\$t)=@_;chop\$t while\$s!~s/\Q\$t\E\$/\$_[1]/;\$s}
... if we're clobbering \$_, we can trim another 5:
```sub i{(\$_,\$t)=@_;chop\$t while!s/\Q\$t\E\$/\$_[1]/;\$_}
update2: 163 chars, strict and global-clean, all in one sub, named assemble (or 156 if it's named a):
```sub assemble{\$#_?(sort{length\$a<=>length\$b}map{my\$s=\$_;my@l=grep\$s ne\$
+_,@_;map{my(\$t,\$u)=(\$s,\$_);my@m=grep\$u ne\$_,@l;chop\$u while\$t!~s/\Q\$u
+\E\$/\$_/;assemble(\$t,@m)}@l}@_)[0]:pop}

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
