    $ perl no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines syntax error at - line 1, near "Perl for " Execution of - aborted due to compilation errors.
    Apparently you have trouble even with less than 40.
      $ perl 'no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines' Can't open perl script "no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines +": No such file or directory $ perl -w `no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines` ^D Can't exec "no": Permission denied at - line 2. $ perl -e "`no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines`" -bash: no: command not found $ which no which: no no in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:~/bin:/opt/bin)

    Smells like homework to me, but what about:
    do { unlink('perl') for ($me); } unless (__LINE__ < 40);

    package ACME::WeightWatchers; use Carp; require Exporter; our @ISA = qw(Exporter); our @EXPORT = 'watchsize'; sub watchsize { local $/ = "\n"; my $caller = caller; open _, "$caller::$0"; while (<_>) { $. == 40 and confess "no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines\n"; } }

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use ACME::WeightWatchers; watchsize(); # your code here ... print "I made it under 40!\n";

    no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines

    Which is plenty of space. I mean, 40 chars would have been a restriction, but 40 lines?
