It runs with warnings and strict on, and even takes a command-line parameter. For your viewing pleasure, the Perl Diamond!

; $.= $ARGV [$-*$-] ||6;print $"x(abs($_) ),$-x(($.-abs ($_))*(2)+1 ),($/)for ((-($.) ..($. ))) ;

    If you want a cool visual effect, run this script in an xterm or dos window and pass a large number (I ran it with 1000) to the script. Otherwise, very well done!
      Very nice. Another fun visual effect is to use a number two times the character width of your terminal, and then scroll up.
