in reply to On JAPHs Redux

Thank you for pointing a node that I have never seen or heard mention of before today!

The table that follows is a direct quote from the good BooK's post:

  • prints "Just Another Perl Hacker"
  • discovery of features
  • less used features used in unusual ways
  • does something useful/funnny/powerful
  • hard to understand/read programs
  • an artistic approach to the code
  • should confuse B::Deparse

So it seems to me that if a JAPH is not obfuscated that it should be posted in Cool Uses For Perl or the Snippets Section.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I've not played with enough Obfu to see what techniques will "confuse" B::Deparse. It would seem that the bytecodes are the bytecodes. The output may be mechanical, but where will B::Deparse not be able to produce Perl from bytecode?
