If you are going to go through this trouble, name the file "Just another Perl hacker,\n" and then reduce it to:

die$0

    Not quite. You need the "\n" at the end of the die() argument to keep it from spitting out the filename (again) and line number.

      I didn't miss that detail. Here is a Perl program that both writes and runs the script under Unix:
      my $filename = "Just another Perl hacker,\n"; open (OUT, "> $filename\0") or die "Cannot write '$filename': $!"; print OUT 'die$0'; close OUT; system "perl '$filename'";
      Do you see where the return is coming from now?
