in reply to Using Obfuscation 'Examples'

I don't think ofuscation is a good exercise for beginners. Advanced perlers play with writing them for a programming challenge and decypher them as a self-test.

Novices are apt to take the wrong lessons from it.

    Maybe (s)he's trying to become an advanced perler by writing them for a challenge and is in the process of deciphering the book as a self test ;)

      You're unquestionably correct ;-)

    However I would like to 'play' with them but I
    am still stuck not knowing how to start!
    Therefore some clues would be much appreciated.
