Well, you forget the condition that the program should be compilable, and, when run, should print "Just another Perl Hacker", (with or without a trailing newline/comma, and with some variation in capitalization). That will drop the number. However, since you can have:

print"Just another Perl Hacker"
(31 characters), you have 4 * 79 - 31 == 285 characters you can use inside comments. If we restrict them to printable characters, that leaves you with 191 characters from the ISO-LATIN-1 character set to use. That will give you:
