( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

There are many style issues (indentation, variable naming schemes) that I would change, but the thing that would probably help you most would be to use Perl's built-in trigonometry operators: cos, sin, atan2, etc. Also, you might want to get rid of sub_haiku(), opting for Carp or warn and die. Also use constant PI => 3.14159 would be a more proper way to define pi that $pi = 3.141.

Beyond that, I don't know what to tell you. Through experience (as long as you care about doing things elegantly and efficiently), you will learn how to shorten code and make it look (and be) cleaner and sexier.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
