(Seriously- there is hope.)

sameerperl, you may want to try this out to unbleach.. If you're stuck. (Dunno where this came from, it was lying around on one of my systems- I tried it out.)

#!/usr/bin/perl # unbleach.pl - for really dirty programs use strict; my $washing = pop or carp("Usage: unbleach [file]"); open white,"<$washing" or carp("Can't get $washing"); local $/; $_=<white>; s/(.*)^\s*use\s+Acme::Bleach\s*;\n(?: \t){8}/$1/ or carp("$washing is not bleached!"); open line,">$washing" or carp("Can't dry $washing"); print line out($_); sub out {s/\n//g;tr/ \t/01/;pack "b*",$_;} sub carp {print shift and exit} =head1 NAME unbleach.pl - For I<really> unclean programs =head1 SYNOPSIS unbleach.pl [file] =head1 DESCRIPTION This script will replace all the unsighted unprintable characters bleached out of your source file by Acme::Bleach. And turn it into directive with elegant (perhaps) ASCII perl code. It also removes the use bleach line when it rewrites the source code. The code continues to work exactly as it did before, but now looks like normal! =head1 DIAGNOSTICS =item C<Can't get '%s'> unbleach.pl could not read the source file. =item C<'%s' is not bleached!> unbleach.pl will only process files that have been previously bleached and have the expected format. =item C<Can't dry '%s'> unbleach.pl could not open the source file to modify it. =head1 SEE ALSO http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/DCONWAY/Acme-Bleach-1.12.tar.gz http://www.perlmonks.com =head1 AUTHOR not Damian Conway (as if you couldn't guess)
