in thread The Matrix Reloaded: JAPH

A possibility is redrawing the whole screen at each frame. For instance (only tested on linux):

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # Array containing all lines my @screen = ( ' 'x70 . "\n" ) x 20; # Array of possible (equiprobable) characters my @char = split //, ' *|'; while(1) { print join '', @screen; # Drop last line pop @screen; # Put a new line on top unshift @screen, join ( '', map { $char[ rand(@char) ] } (1..70) ) + . "\n"; # Sleep for 0.1 seconds select(undef, undef, undef, 0.1); }

Update: The value 20 in the @screen initialization should be at least the terminal height minus 1 (due to the last line being empty). If it's less, then the upper portion of each frame is filled by the last lines of the previous one.

Cheers

    So, incorporating abell and cfreak's suggestions, you get:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w @screen = ( ' 'x70 . "\n" ) x 20; $gen_line = sub { my $qw; for(1..70){ if( !$q[$_] && rand > .993 ){ $q[$_] = q$.$ x 5 . q$ $ x 1 . ${ [ qw$tsuJ rehtona lreP rekcaH$ ] }[$qq++] . q$ $ x 1 . q$.$ x 5; $qq = $qq > 3 ? 0: $qq; } if( $q[$_] ){ ( $qx, $q[$_] ) = split//, $q[$_],2; $qw .= $qx; }else{ $qw .= q$ $; } } "\33[0;32m$qw\33[0m"; }; while(1) { print join '', @screen; # Drop last line pop @screen; # Put a new line on top unshift @screen, $gen_line->() . "\n"; # Sleep for 0.1 seconds select(undef, undef, undef, 0.1); }

    Seems to work nicely under ActiveState Perl 5.8.0 on Windows 2000.
