Taking it one step further here is a repackage of btrott's version that takes an argument to choose from an array of weird spinners.

# main my $whirley = Whirley->new(1); while (1) { sleep 1; print STDERR "please wait: ", $whirley->(), "\r"; } package Whirley; sub new { my $type = shift; my $number = shift; my $class = ref $type || $type; my $WHIRLEY_COUNT = -1; my @whirleyhash = ( [qw(- \ | / )], [map chr, qw/32 176 177 178 219 178 177 176/], [qw(>--- ->-- -->- ---> ---* --- ---< --<- -<-- <--- *---)], [qw(_o_ \o/ _O_ \O/)], [qw/. .o .oO .oO(zzz) .oO(ZZZ) /], [ '(^_^ )','( ^_^)'], [ '(^_^ )','( ^_^)','( -_-)', '(-_- )' ] ); my @whirley = @{$whirleyhash[$number]}; my $self = sub { $WHIRLEY_COUNT = 0 if ++$WHIRLEY_COUNT == @whirley; return $whirley[$WHIRLEY_COUNT]; }; bless $self, $class; }
