Elegant simplicity, very pleasing on the eyes.

# Essence of this script is the dereferenced reference construct # 'Just Another perl Hacker' == ${\('Just Another Perl Hacker')} print "Just Another Perl Hacker\n" if 'Hacker' == ${\(Hacker)}; # Each line is best read from right to left. The embedding of the # derefed literals make a clever obfuscation but repeats almost # identically for each block. Got one got em all. # \u -> title case next char only # \L -> lowercase until \E # \E -> end case # $" -> $LIST_SEPERATOR default value ' ', used for ' ' # Splitting the $" onto two lines is a rather clever trick which # removes the newline which is present in the code presented below: print qq'${\(foo)}$ # split line $" syntax avoids newline here "${\(bar)} ${\(foo)}$" ${\(bar)}\n'; print qq' \u\L$ {\(J.${\(U.${\(S.${\(T)})})})} $"\E\L${\(A.${\(N.${\(O.${\(T.${\(H.${\(E.${\(R)})})})})})})} $"\E\u\L${\(P.${\(E.${\(R.${\(L)})})})} $"\E\L${\(H.${\(A.${\(C.${\(K.${\(E.${\(R)})})})})})}$/ '
