    If reading aloud, make sure you pronounce "." as "dot" or "stop", "=" as "equals", and don't pronounce commas or semicolons at all.

    "\n" can be "slash N", "new line", or "line break".

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
