in reply to my fisrt japh with the unpack function

While I don't want to discourage your efforts in extending your knowledge of Perl and the functions therein, I must object to this being classified as "obfuscated code". The primary reason for this is that the code logic and execution is hardly obscured or hidden - It is a single unpack statement from which the results are print-ed, nothing more.

For a bit of background reading on how to write really good obfuscated code, I would recommend having a look at the two obfuscation code reviews by japhy here and here. Also too have a look at the obfuscated code written by the mighty Erudil, including the camel code.


Ooohhh, Rob no beer function well without!

    Ok, i will read those, but you know, for me, it is obfuscated as it seems unreadable ;-) btw, am i the only newbie here ?

      The fact that you are a newbie doesn't mean we will outcast you.

      What you should do is learn the language very thoroughly like japhy has, then learn how to manipulate it. Once you have done that, you too can write some pretty cool obfu's.
