Balls! Pt 2

Hi all, Apologies for posting something so similar to my previous effort, but the code is completely different in this one -
  • it doesn't use VT100 codes (except \ec which i think works everywhere),
  • everything is generated (except the shading scale) - compared with it being encoded in this
    theoretically you could make a new shape (along the lines of $x**2+$y**2+$z**2<$r**2 - which is used here)and it would work with that...
  • it actually uses closest path shading to the lightsource
It's also 1 ball of code shorter (a standard i intend to start using - 1 ball =~ 200 chars :-D ).
anyway, without further ado:

$_=q`$_=' @8GCI';@a=/./g; $j=9;$k=9;$w=25;$ c=35;$e= 8;$u=2;$v=1;{$k+=$v* =$k<6|$k>16?-1: 1;$j+=$u*=$j<9|$j>60?- 1:1;my(%l,$m,$n); for$y(0..22){for(0..70 ){$r=($_-$j)/1.6;$s= $y-$k;$d=(($_-$c)**2+( $y-$f)**2+(($w-$r**2-$ s**2)**.5-$e)**2)**.5; if($r**2+$s**2<$w){$m= $d<$m||!$m?$d:$m;$n= $d>$n?$d:$m;$l{$y}{$_} =$d;}}}print"\ec"; for$y(0..22){print$_>6 9?$/:(($d=$l{$y }{$_})?$a[($d-$m)*5/ $n]:$")fo r(0..70)}select$q, $q,$q,.1;redo}`; s#\s##g;eval
Enjoy!
Alex

    More balls! More balls!
      Personally I think they look more like tits. But yay tits!

    Believe it or not, I sent this to a buddy of mine who is alot more experienced with Perl than I am. We tried running it but no dice (had a couple of errors during the run). I simply did a copy/paste btw.

    What exactly is this supposed to do?

    (Yes... I play a Perl noobie in R/L and T.V. ::grinz::)

      sorry to hear that - it should just work with copy and paste, but you can right click on download code and save it - then do perl index.pl (although i think ie adds some stuff that you might have to edit out).
      good luck with it.

[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
