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

What this obfu lacks in artistic merit (that's supposed to be a Möbius strip), I think it makes up in technique and name. I got the idea from a Haskell assignment (egads! Posting homework to the monastery?), and I think the main concept is mildly clever. I'd love to talk about it, but I don't want to spoil the surprise!

#! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict; sub godel{my ($f,$a,$l)=@_;return $a unless @$l;my$x=shift @$l;&$f( $x,&godel($f,$a,$l));}my @M=split '', "Just another ";my @I =split '' +, "Perl hacker,"; my @U =reverse @M; su +b escher{my ($l,$m) =@_;sub{$l= pop @ +U if @U;$l.&$m();} } unshift@U, split ' +' ,"pool egnarts";my$bach=&godel(\&escher,&godel(\&escher,sub{return"\n" +} ,\@I),\@M);print &$bach(); ### Inspired by Douglas Hofstadter's _GEB_

Tested on Perl 5.6.1, Linux 2.4.18.

Title:
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.
