If inclined, one could write a reverse acronymer. With Perl and a word list one could find mnemonics like:

seek frozen panda waffles
seek fattened pizza witches
seek fierce psychedelic wives

I never cared for 'Every good boy does fine'. Maybe I can lobby for 'Extinct goats burn dry footballs'?


#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my ($string, $num) = @ARGV; my ($DICT) = '/usr/share/dict/words'; my (%words, @chs, $ch, $line, $i); @chs = split('', $string); for $ch (@chs) { if (!defined($words{$ch})) { $words{$ch} = []; } } if (!open(IN, $DICT)) { print STDERR "\nError:$DICT\n\n"; exit; } while (chomp ($line = <IN>)) { $ch = substr($line, 0, 1); if (defined($words{$ch})) { push (@{$words{$ch}}, $line); } } for ($i = 0; $i < $num; $i++) { for $ch (@chs) { print "$words{$ch}->[rand(@{$words{$ch}})] "; } print "\n"; }

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.
