in thread Brain Teaser
$ perl -le 'print \\///\\\//'
What the result of \\///\\\// is depends on
how memory is alloced. It'll depend on your malloc

on how Perl was build); it'll hand out addresses using some
algorithm, based on various factors. Don't assume that when
you run it once on your system, it will be the same universally.
