    There's no need to guess - it's all documented in perlrun.

    I personally believe that although I ++'d your post, you should have chosen a better section and a better phrasing, since SoPW is for actual questions (typically with problems one is experiencing) while yours is more of a fun thing, which is a nice thing also - but better fit elsewhere.

      Fair call. I didn't think about it at the time.

Discipulus was outside The Clash concert in 1985..
[marto]: Wolfsbane , now I'm having flashbacks
[choroba]: Isn't Using PerlPod Creatively rather a meditation?
[choroba]: I don't see a question
[1nickt]: ugh, I stuck my head in the bass bin for 30 seconds on a dare at Ted Nugent at Hammersmith Odeon. Yes, I am 40% deaf now.
