in reply to On JAPHs Redux

As the inventor of the JAPH (and some would say "JAPH #0"), I would have to put JAPHs firmly inside the set of all ObfuPerls. It meets all the requirements of ObfuPerl (using unusual features, using features unusually, messing with spacing and alternate delimiters, etc.), and the additional requirements that it print a signature line (canonical JAPHs printing my now-famous 25 character string "Just another Perl hacker," including the comma). I don't see anything about JAPHs that would make them not ObfuPerl, unless you're talking about the most trivial versions.

    I concur that JAPHs meet all the requirements of ObfuPerl, but I submit that they are an important subset thereof -- significant enough to warrant their own section.

      No, they're not an important subset significant enough to warrant their own section.

        Yes, it is.

        Sorry, couldn't resist.
