in reply to 99 bottles of beer on the wall

You'll probably be interested in node 99 Bottles Of Beer (can't we do better).

Just cause I'm chirpy today, I'll reprise my not-very-terse solution:

#!/usr/bin/perl $bc = abs(shift || 100); $p_sub = sub { 'Take ' . (shift == 1 ? 'it' : 'one') . " down, pass it around,\n" }; $b_sub = sub { 'bottle' . (shift != 1 ? 's' : '') }; $c_sub = sub { $_ = shift||'No'; "$_ " . &$b_sub($_) . ' of beer' }; $w_sub = sub { &$c_sub(shift) . " on the wall"; }; $sub = sub { $_ = shift; print &$w_sub($_), ",\n", &$c_sub($_), ",\n", &$p_sub($_), &$w_sub(--$_), ".\n\n" }; map(&$sub($_), reverse(1 .. $bc)); print "burp!\n";
