Suaveant's JAPH with a twist

by suaveant (Parson)
on Aug 08, 2001 at 18:29 UTC ( #103061=obfuscated: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Here is my first real JAPH attempt...
$a=eval ('eval q[${q&@KZB&};&{\'?~x})Jcd}anw)Ynwe)Ajh`nw\'}];$' .($/^'J').'=~/([@?][^" ]+)/; $1');for(split'',$a){print$/^(chr( ord($_)+int(length($a)/ord($/)/2)));}print$/;
Now, here is the twist... run it with perl -Mstrict. (or strict off, if you ran strict first :)

Update2 changed JAPH slightly so it works on 5.005 AND 5.6.x

Update mr_mischief informs me that my perl -Mstrict trick only works in perl 5.6.0 and above... oops! :)

    Without strict, 5.005_03 and 5.6.0 do the same thing. The 'twist' requires 5.6.0 or newer.

    It is a nice trick. ++ on this one from me.

      Oops... yeah, I used 5.6.1, what does it do in 5.005?

      Is it sufficiently obfuscated, or is it just messy? :)

        There are better people to ask about 'sufficiently obfuscated', but I must say, it's pretty good from where I sit.

        As for behavior under 5.005, it says that @KZB needs to be declared.
