    In occasion of first day of Spring* i give you the second issue of perl obfupoetry:

    How:to:forget:when:I:was:young: join ' had ', (glob'spr{a,e,i,o,u}ng')[2,4]; Now:I:get:in:the:middle:of: join ' and ', (glob'Y{i,a}n{,g}')[0,-1]; and:I:remember:it:was:a:bang: seek DATA,0,0;while(<DATA>){last if/DATA/; chomp&&print/:/?(join$",split':',$_):eval,$/} __DATA__


    (*)please do not reply with positivist comments about the exact first day of Spring: seasons always start in day 21: the notion is in my mind since..

    There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
    Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.

    The wise coder will never pipe grep into awk
    For unneeded processes cause neighbours to talk.
    The wise coder will never type cat file | foo
    Unless they want a UUoCA too.
    The wise coder will never discard output from backticks
    As that displays ignorance of better tactics.
    The wise coder won't shell out to grep, awk or sed
    Since no JAPH would be seen doing that, dead.

    Looking for ways to get perl to make Magic? Any odd way to print that word: like a JAPH! This shell one liner runs 3 perl one liners that run perl 4 times to make Magic:
    perl -e'$_="Larry";while(++$_){print"\rPerl is $_";goto(MAGIC)if/Magic +/}MAGIC:print"\n"';perl -v|perl -pe's\Perl\Magic\magic';perl -e'print +"[Perl$^V] ";<STDIN>'

    I love you and I miss you. Have been making some dough with Java for the past few years but I am returning to you with my new endeavour.

    My time with Java has been a means to an end and I can now say, with a great degree of certainty, that there is no other language I would rather code with for the rest of my life.

    With the same degree of certainty I can also say what a piece of crap Java is.

    Can't wait to type your wonderful syntax again, and can't wait to learn 6.

    Cya soon! ait

    Hi, the qwf is pronounced "qwif" and stands for the Quantuum Wave Function. The term "popping the qwf" comes from the excellent movie "What the Bleep! Down the Rabbit Hole", where a good professor uses it as his slang for "collapsing the wave function".

    So it's no more use'ing warnings and no more real threads; no more "if braces" and no more \*ARGVs; no more dollars as the sigils; no more one-liners with `perl -a`; I'm free() at last I'm undef at last I'm lost and found ...fetch your stop words, baby... ...cos we're stemming words, tonight... ...import nlkt... ...everything's gonna... alright?

Add your poem
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
