Scripting Games, part 3

[ #38148 ]

Next one: find winner of skater contest.

        # Calculate score for single result
        sub calculate_score(@scores) {
                # Sort scores
                my @sorted = sort @scores;
                # Drop highest and lowest
                shift @sorted;
                pop @sorted;
                # Calculate final score
                ([+] @sorted)/ +@sorted;

        # Parse line in form "Ken Myer,55,66,76,67,59,70,54", and return (score, name)
        sub parse_line($line) {
                my @parts = $line.split(',');
                reverse(shift @parts, calculate_score(@parts));

        # Main cycle. Read file, parse lines, build mapping score=>name
        my $fh = open('skaters.txt') or die;
        my %results = map &parse_line, =$fh;

        # Get 3 top results
        my @top = %results.keys.sort.reverse[0..2];
        # And show them
        say %results{$_}, ': ', $_ for @top;

I don't know what to say. Solution is straight forward.
