In occasion of first day of Spring* i give you the first issue of perl obfupoetry:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; our @life = (0..70); my $self = { age => $life[int($#life/2)], # #078101108032109101122122111032100101108032099097109109 #105110032100105032110111115116114097032118105116097 # remember => sub{scalar @_}, }; our $wood = { dark=>1, #109105032114105116114111118097105032112101114032117110 #097032115101108118097032111115099117114097 # straight_way => undef, #099104101039032108097032100105114105116116097032118105 #097032101114097032115109097114114105116097046 # # wild=>1, rough=>1, stubborn=>1, inside=>[], }; while ( $self->{'age'} ){ push @{$wood->{'inside'}},$self; if (scalar @$wood{qw(wild rough stubborn)}) { #065104105032113117097110116111032097032100105114032113 #117097108032101114097032101039032099111115097032100117114097 # for (@$wood{qw(wild rough stubborn)}) { #101115116097032115101108118097032115101108118097103103 #105097032101032097115112114097032101032102111114116101 # $self->{'fear'}+= $$self{remember}->($_); #099104101032110101108032112101110115105101114032114105 #110111118097032108097032112097117114097033 # # } } last; } END { seek DATA,0,0; while (<DATA>){ print "\n" if /^#$/; s/^#//; print map {chr 0+$_} ($_=~/\d{3}/g); } } __DATA__

Enjoy!

(*)please do not reply with positivist comments about the exact first day of Spring: seasons always start in day 21: the notion was in my mind when thumbs were still there..

There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
