You call this obfuscation?

You make not use of context, you explicitely use $_, @_, you never even try to hide something... It's so clear, you just read it and understand the whole thing!

I showed it to a non-Perl programmer, explaining what split, etc did... I mean, we didn't even need to run the stuff to know what it did and how!

Having all lines of the same length is not enough to qualify, in my view... Except if you lines are 4 characters long.

Update: So that people stop downvoting me, here my shorter (but not more obfuscated) version:

print+map{pack'H*' ,$_}('4a7573742041 6e6f74686572205065 726c204861636b6572 0a0d'=~m/(..)/g)

It doesn't read its own source code, makes use of the fact that . doesn't match newlines, chains everything in one statement, etc...
