IIRC, some of the old 68xx processors had undefined opcodes. Most of these were effectively NOP, but at least one sent the processor into a mad series of loops,and could be stopped only by powering the machine down. I always heard it called "HCF", standing for "Halt and Catch Fire". I never saw it for myself, but it had its fifteen minutes of fame.

[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, I can't decide whether or not to move my RolePlaying:: Random:: modules to just Random::. I'm not as sophisticated as most here.
[marioroy]: Naming things can be difficult, sometimes more so that the actual code :)
[karlgoethebier]: Lady_Aleena: You need to jump to some conclusion
[Lady_Aleena]: And what would I rename RolePlaying/Random .pm to if I move all the RolePlaying/Random modules to just Random? Random/ Random/, maybe lowercase the file name to indicate it is a bit different? I don't know yet.
[marioroy]: What does Random do?
