in reply to oh for y///e

What are you trying to do with the /e switch? eval 'b-zaZA-Y'? I don't see the point. And if you want to eval the result, just do eval y/a-zA-Z/b-zaZA-Y/r while <DATA>;

And if you just put the /e by mistake, just take it away and your code will work just fine.

    Maybe something like:
    $cryped = substitution_cypher(); $text =~ y/a-z/$crypted/e;
    instead of
    eval "\$text =~ y/a-z/$crypted/";
      It would be cool when writing Obfuscated Code to eval the results of a transform without using eval to make it obvious what you are doing.
