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

This is my first attempt at perl poetry, so please consider that.

Inspired by katgirl's excellent Bohemian Rhapsody (part 1) (and part 2), I attempted the following, an attempt at "Eclipse" from The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, written by Roger Waters. (Good song-I can only claim the any bugs in the interpretation. My appreciation to all those where were in the CB who helped with some questions while I was attempting to code this.)

%All; %Everyone; %Everything; $light = "sun"; @all_that_you = qw(touch see taste feel love hate give deal buy beg bo +rrow steal do say eat slight); @all_you = qw(feel distrust save create destroy); @everyone_you = qw(meet fight); @all_that_is = qw(now gone to_come); @everything_under = ("the sun"); @All{@all_that_you, @all_you, @all_that_is} = ("in tune") x (@all_that +_you, @all_you, @all_that_is); @Everyone{@everyone_you} = ("in tune") x @everyone_you; @Everything{@everything_under} = ("in tune") x @everything_under; my $light = "moon"; $dark_side_of_the_moon = undef; $all = "dark";

Update: Found and added link to page containing lyrics after someone suggested that it might be hard to follow for someone unfamiliar with the lyrics. Enjoy.

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.
