Great obfu. Funky!

Just as a matter of curiosity I tore into it and made a few modifications:

  • Pushed everything that is to be printed into an array so that the script could get away with only one print, with less processing inside the print function, for a little better (maybe?) output efficiency.
  • Changed sleep 1 to select, with a timeout of .2 sec., for smoother action without loss of synchronization.
  • Golfed it down as much as I could without changing logic, flow, or behavior. Saved 82 keystrokes.
  • Reformatted script for seventeen full lines and one partial, plus the shebang.

Here's the result:

Loved the obfu. Good job! Wading through the maps and logic was quite a challenge. Especially the outtermost map, with a hashtable of subs inside.... ugg, what a mess! That's not a bad thing, in the context of a fantastic obfu. Keep it up!
