in reply to PerlMonk wins Perl Poety Contest
What strikes me, though, is that Kevin Meltzer seems way ahead of the time: the document states it's from October 2001 and to quote my computer:
Mon Sep 10 13:40:28 CEST 2001
And the winner brings up a few other thoughts:
- is there a tengwar mode for writing perl? ((x)emacs support would be nice)
- what about rewriting The Camel in Cirth and carving it into stone?
- is there a version of perl which doesn't use English words but Quenya for it's statements?
you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion
