in reply to Automatic Perl Obfuscation

I would imagine that someone has already written one "just for the kicks" of it, but IMHO it is much more fun to write obfuscations that to read them. As a matter of fact, de-obfuscating someone's code is usually much easier that writting yours from scratch. Why would you want the fun part automized??

    You know, obfuscated code that obfuscates code using a couple of the "standard" obfuscations could be rather fun.

    Especially if done with style, such as not using any of the obfucations that it uses in itself to obfuscate it's code, or perhaps reading itself to help obfuscate.

    Way beyond me, but interesting.
