PHP Challenge #2 Results

So the results are in from the second PHP challenge.

Runner-up was Plix with an entry that recursively slices a string of the numerals after comparing it to the number being thrown into the function. Quite clever, really. 236 bytes, in total.

Not clever enough, however, to beat ZeroByte who also won the last challenge. Rather than putting the numerals into a string and slicing it, he put them into an array and just pulled them out (although he admits he doesn’t know how the code works – he adapted a JavaScript version). So there you have it. Congrats to ZeroByte (again) and Plix!

The next challenge will be set within a few days.
