Nice. Reading this was like comfort food.

There's a spoiler in the readmore.

  1. Fill @M with "Just another "
  2. Fill more with "strange loop"
  3. Nested godels on the stack while the global @U has data so the "Perl hacker," portion is just overwritten during $l = of escher(). Here \@I is just an iterator (though it contains some tantalizingly familiar data) so that @U can be popped properly.
    P( e( r( l( ( h( a( c( k( r( ,( "\n" ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) )
  4. Pretend to do something with @M though really this is just another loop to go extract more stuff from the global @U.
    J( u( s( t( ( a( n( o( t( h( e( r( "strange loop" ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) )
  5. print
#! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use vars qw( @U ); my @M = split '', "Just another "; my @I =split '', "Perl hacker,"; @U = reverse @M; unshift( @U, split '', "pool egnarts" ); print godel( godel( sub{ "\n" }, \ @I ), \ @M )->(); sub godel { my ($a, $l) = @_; return $a unless @$l; my $x = shift @$l; return escher( $x, godel( $a, $l ) ) ; } sub escher { my ($l, $m) = @_; return sub { $l = pop @U if @U; return $l . $m->(); }; }

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.
