in reply to Sainthood via Seniority Simulation

Here it is rewritten for clarity and to fix the bug pg reported. Also, it now supports level vroom and doesn't require a non-standard prerequisite.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $USAGE =<<END_USAGE; $0 your_xp [ vrooms_xp ] END_USAGE sub XP () { 0 } sub VOTES () { 1 } sub DESC () { 2 } my @LEVEL = ( [ 0, 0, 'an initiate' ], [ 20, 5, 'a novice' ], [ 50, 8, 'an acolyte' ], [ 100, 12, 'a scribe' ], [ 200, 16, 'a monk' ], [ 500, 20, 'a friar' ], [ 1000, 25, 'an abbot' ], [ 1600, 30, 'a bishop' ], [ 2300, 35, 'a pontiff' ], [ 3000, 40, 'a saint' ], ); die $USAGE unless @ARGV >= 1 and @ARGV <= 2; my $xp = shift; my $level = 0; push @LEVEL, [ pop, 42, 'the one and only vroom' ] if @ARGV; my $day = 0; do { $day++; # Anyone remember One Day at a Time? # What level are we today? while ($LEVEL[ $level + 1 ] and $xp >= $LEVEL[ $level + 1 ]->[ XP +]) { $level++; printf "Day %5d You are %s.\n", $day, $LEVEL[ $level ]->[ DESC + ]; } # %25 chance of 2xp for showing up. int rand( 4 ) or $xp += 2; # %25 chance of 1xp for every vote. int rand( 4 ) or $xp++ for 1 .. $LEVEL[ $level ]->[ VOTES ]; # 1/6 * votes * 1xp for pre-friars. $xp += int ( $LEVEL[ $level ]->[ VOTES ] / 6 ) if $level < 4; } until ( $level == $#LEVEL );
