I think it would be more appropriate to have Abigail.. since he writes some great JAPHs.

Cheers,

    I'd put BooK above Abigail for Obfuscation by a long shot. BTW, obfuscation covers more than just JAPHs.

            - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")

      Well, uh thanks...

      I really believe that obfuscation covers a lot of different topics...

      • It's not only unreadable code or convoluted print statements
      • The most interesting ways to obfuscate are probably not in encrypting your code so that it's unreadable
      • Obfuscated algorithms are very interesting (see the many more than one way to do $A++, for example)
      • To me, "linguistic" constraints are so interesting and I can't even comment on them ;-)

      But by any means, don't do this at hom^W^Win production code...

      True.. either way, I wouldn't think merlyn would be the O++++. Maybe for map, he should.

      BTW, obfuscation covers more than just JAPHs.

      Oh, it does? Wowzers, I never knew that!! I thought Perl would puke on obfuscated code that didn't contain the words "Just Another Perl Hacker". *smirk*

      Either way, more people likely know who Abigail is and likely consider him the current 'leader' for obfuscated Perl.. and if you have something like this I would think a more recognizable name makes more sense. But, that's my opinion :)

      Cheers,
      KM

        Well, uh, I intend to make myself a name in obfuscation... *grin*

        Since I stopped writing poetry under constraints (see Oulipo), I found Perl to be a nice replacement... I have difficulties not to think of multilingual programs as pieces of art or poetry...
