( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Early yesterday, there was a mention of Thinkgeek's BCD Clock in the chatterbox. Later in the day, another friend mentioned it to me. Given 2 occurances in the same day, I figured fate *had* to be telling me something, and so here we are. :)

Anyways, this code is a direct simulation of the electrical schmatic needed to build such a clock, with a few lines of "pure perl" used to initialize it to the correct time. You may want to adjust the last 3 lines so that the output looks best on your console.

A gold star to anyone who can draw up a correct state-diagram or schematic based on this code.

Update: If the output looks garbled on your console, change lines 115 and 174 to the versions that are commented out below them.

Update 2: Added output flush thanks to broquaint, which should improve output on some systems.
