PerlMonks FAQ -> Where should I post X? -> "Obfuscated code"

  • Code whose function is not immediately apparent to anyone
  • Make your code as compact as possible, get rid of that needless whitespace, make things as confusing as possible.
  • Don't be too cocky with your post. You'll (almost) always get a reply that does the exact same thing in even less characters

While the Obfuscation section is not restricted to JAPHs, they are by far the most common. JAPHs in particular are usually expected to be no more than 4 lines of 80 columns each. To be 100% consistent with the original JAPH by merlyn, it also needs to produce the following exactly:
Just another Perl hacker,

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