Some explaining:

A finite number of Voronoi points (v-points) are distributed on a plane. Each v-point has an associated neighborhood (v-hood). The v-hood is the set of points nearer to the v-point than any other v-point.

To shade the v-hoods, I find the distances to the nearest two v-points and divide the smallest distance by the next smallest distance ($best / $good). This number will always be between 0 and 1. Points in the middle of a v-hood will be close to 0, points near the edge will be close to 1, being nearly the same distance from both points.

Multiplying by 10 and using the integer result gives an index to the @CHARS array.

Random v-points are added in the square with corners at (0,0) and (1,1). To achieve wrapping additional v-points are added in the eight surrounding squares.

So for v-point (.2, .3), these points are added:
(-.8, -.7) (-.8, .3) (-.8, 1.3)
( .2, -.7) ( .2, .3) ( .2, 1.3)
(1.2, -.7) (1.2, .3) (1.2, 1.3)

To see just the borders use:

my @CHARS = split('', ' #');
For stripes:
my @CHARS = split('', ' # # # # #');

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
