An amusing trifle if you want to make it look like your perl script is really DOING something. Useful for showing off to computer illiterate types whom you want to impress with your programming skills. To your Pointy Haired Boss you say: "Hmmm, that's a difficult calculation..." But you think: . o 0 ( MAN, That's a one liner! ) This little spinner adds amusing flair to a program that would otherwise finish in an eyeblink.
sub jitter { for (1..100) { print "|"; $foo=rand 100; for(1..$foo){} print "\x08"; print "/"; for(1..$foo){} print "\x08"; print "-"; for(1..$foo){} print "\x08"; print "\\"; for(1..$foo){} print "\x08"; } } sub flimflam { $bar= rand 10; for (1..$bar) { jitter(); print "."; } }

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.
