in reply to Perl in Fall

At pfaut's suggestion, here's one that prints out "Just another perl hacker."

$me = "Just a"; print "other perl hacker.\n" if print $me and print "n";

Hmm, the problem with making code haiku is that people pronounce symbols different ways... imagine trying to write a haiku in perl if you pronounced each "dollar sign".

Perl Monks do it more than one way.

    Somewhere during my young and innocent BASIC days, annoyed at the lengthy (even more so in German) "dollar sign", I picked up the habit of pronouncing $ as "string". I have never been able to shake it since. :)

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      same here, aristotle. :)

      sometimes i even find myself pronouncing it in UNC shares: \\server\share$ ("share string")

      I have not developed via habit a wonderful shortcut for dollar sign (or just dollar). I think if I'm going to give it the verbal chop, I'll try training myself to use Buck. You know, buck as in dollar. If I can knock it to one syllable, I'll get more ! for my speaking $.
