( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Again in honor to the inspiration for my nickname, here's the last verse of one of W.B. Yeats' best known poems. It's one of those 'translate into Perl' poems - as such it compiles and runs (though not under strict).
# Twenty centuries of stony sleep # were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle. # And what rough beast, its hour come round at last # slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? # # The Second Coming # W.B. Yeats use constant { CENTURY => 3153600000 }; package stone; sub sleep (;$) { &CORE::sleep(shift); } package Cradle::Rocking; sub vex {}; package Yeats; Cradle::Rocking::vex( dest => 'Nightmare', subject => sub { stone::sleep CENTURY for (0 .. 19) } ); my %beasts; $beasts{'rough'} = [{ dest => 'Eire', mode => 'course', hour => 1 }, { dest => 'Innisfree', mode => 'amble', hour => 2} +, { dest => 'Bethlehem', mode => 'slouch', hour => 3 +}, ]; (my $beast) = grep { $_->{dest} eq 'Bethlehem' && $_->{mode} eq 'slouch' } @{$beasts{'rough'}}; while ('Eternity') { last if (((localtime(time))[2] == $beast->{hour})); } bless $beast, 'Life';

Title:
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.
