Not by hand, I suppose.
Actually, this one was all done by hand (as opposed to Just Another Larry, where I freely admit to using a tool to get my initial picture :)). I *looked* at some generated-ASCII-art as a starting point for the formatting, but with something like this (where, as halley says, the code is using compulsory whitespace etc.) it's near-impossible to automate. You just have to fiddle around until it fits. If you look carefully, you'll see there's lots of 'cheating' going on - the '+' sign in the middle of the downstroke for instance (where I would have loved to have been able to stick another 'sub' or 'for'), or the 'print join' in the tail...an automatic version would presumably have found a better 'fit'.

Glad you liked it,
Ben.

    Nice obfu! If you peer at the Snowflakes section of Acme::EyeDrops there's an example of how you can make composing these type of obfus a little bit less tedious, though it usually requires quite a bit of manual adjustment, unfortunately. /me scribbles note to add a similar shape to next release of A::E.
