Hmm... it prints out the string directly. I want it to instead of print "string", to make it so it has 1 second intervals between each character it's printing... But im going to read the article you linked me.

    Ah, in that case, I think you were mostly on the right track except with the buffering thing and the end case for the for loop.

    $| = 1; foreach my $letter (split '', $string) { print $letter; sleep 1; }

      Somewhat obscure, but I think the following is cute:

      sleep($|=print) for split '', $string;

      print returns 1 if it's successful.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
