New Python still the one to beat at 31 characters.
Oh, btw, Mike: *shun*

"Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson..."
New Well I Wouldn't want to shun Mike, but...
if I simply had to shun somebody, maybe:

fort=1to50:?"*shun* ";:next

would be the way to do it on a Commodore 64 (Vic, 128, whatever) in 27 characters.

New Nice, but a wee problem...
If you ever LISTed the code, it would expand out the '?' to PRINT IIRC...

I'm getting an urge to write an auto*SHUN*ner in Brainf**k - anybody else tempted?

New Not any more it ain't
ruby -e'puts"*shun*\\n"*50'

Clocks in at 26.

And your Python golf sucks. Here is 29.

python -c"print'*shun*\\n'*50"

But if the goal is just to get *shun* to appear 50 times, I think the following is pretty decent.

ruby -e'p"*shun*"*50'


21 chars.

The following is probably cheating...

ruby -e'p"*shun"*51'

Cheers,
Ben

PS Why not Perl? Use the right tool for the job and all that. Ruby was a better choice this time. :-)

PPS Peter: Learn to loop over ranges already? No need to make Perl look like it sucks more than it does already. :-)

New Now inline it
perl -e'print"*shun*
"for 1..50'

Or using Scott's trick:

perl -e'print"*shun*
"x50'

(Both assume a Unix-like shell.)

Cheers,
Ben

PS Ruby still wins at 25:

ruby -e'puts"*shun*
"*50'

PPS OK, there is a shorter entry, but it didn't include invoking the language etc. The Ruby program proper is 16 chars.

New Re: bashun II
\r\nyes '*shun*'|head -50\r\n
\r\n\r\n

21 characters. Best I can tell, invoking an interpreter from the\r\nnext shortest solution involves more characters (that would be Scott's\r\nPython solution).

New Reading trouble?
If you read the rest of the thread, the shortest existing solution was [link|http://z.iwethey.org/forums/render/content/show?contentid=64997|mine]. I beat Scott for nice output using Ruby, tied you for just satisfying the rules (albeit with ugly output), and if you make a judgement call just right, I beat you as well. :-P

But that is a nice answer...

Turns out the quotes aren't necessary at least in bash. Need to find\r\nout more about what the globbing rules are.

New Very nasty
It works...unless there is a file in the directory that matches the pattern *shun*.

Still good enough that I consider it a winner. :-)

New You can lose a character
Pointed out by a co-worker...

yes '*shun*'|sed 50q

Or lose the quotes if no files have shun in the name.
