In an effort to understand what is going on here, I decided to put the code in a more readable format

#!/usr/bin/perl $_=' $q="\47"; while($; = $z+ =.5){ %c = $r = 0; $/=""; while(20+$z>($;+=.05)){ $c { int $_ + 26 + 2 * ($r += .02) * sin $; } { 1 - $_ + 10 + int $r * cos $; } = 1for(0..1) } $t = reverse; $/ .= `clear` . "#!/usr/bin/perl\n\$_=$q\n"; for $y (1..20){ $c{$_}{$y} ? $/ .= chop $t : ($/ .= "\40")for(0..53); $/.="\n" } print "$/$q;s;" .chr(92). "s;;g;eval\n" } '; s;\s;;g;eval

Quite amazingly it prints the same image in this format. I think it has to do with the sin/cos.

Two things I am unfamiliar with, the $; variable and this line:


Big props BTW

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.
