JAPH attempt using Term::ANSIScreen

My obligatory first attempt at a JAPH, so I'd welcome comment and/or constructive critique. I do not really consider it obfu; thus my confusion on where to post it, since Obfuscations did not seem quite right. (If there is a better place to move it to, please suggest it. Thank you.)

Basic process is as follows. In attempting not to use the words themselves, I created a hash containing the positions of the letters appearing in the words. I then created a hash containing a mapping of character positions for drawing each character (thus its length). I then built each line's display, and began to loop, writing only a specified length segment of the lines each time, and using Term::ANSIScreen to move back to the beginning so it would appear somewhat "animated".

Enjoy.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Term::ANSIScreen; $| = 1; my $delay = 0.1; my $width = 75; my $charwidth = 9; my $looptimes = 10; my %lpos = ( ' ' => [ 4, 12, 17, 24 ], 'a' => [ 5, 19 ], 'c' => [20], 'e' => [ 10, 14, 22 ], 'h' => [ 9, 18 ], 'J' => [0], 'k' => [21], 'l' => [16], 'n' => [6], 'o' => [7], 'p' => [13], 'r' => [ 11, 15, 23 ], 's' => [2], 't' => [ 3, 8 ], 'u' => [1] ); my (%letters); { my ($x); my ($y); foreach $y ( 0 .. 7 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{' '} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $x ( 1 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'a'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 2 } ); } foreach $x ( 5 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'a'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 5 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'a'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 5 } ); } foreach $y ( 4, 6 ) { foreach $x ( 1 .. 3, 5 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'a'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 2, 6 ) { foreach $x ( 2 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'c'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 3 .. 5 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1 ) { push( @{ $letters{'c'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $x ( 1 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'e'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 2 } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 4 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'e'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'e'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 4 } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 1 ) { push( @{ $letters{'e'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 5 } ); } foreach $x ( 1 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'e'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 6 } ); } foreach $y ( 0 .. 2 ) { push( @{ $letters{'h'} }, { 'x' => 0, 'y' => $y }, { 'x' => 1, 'y' => $y } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'h'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $y ( 4 .. 6 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 4 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'h'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $x ( 2 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'J'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 0 } ); } foreach $y ( 1 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'J'} }, { 'x' => 4, 'y' => $y }, { 'x' => 5, 'y' => $y } ); } foreach $x ( 1 .. 2, 4 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'J'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 5 } ); } foreach $x ( 2 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'J'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 6 } ); } foreach $y ( 0 .. 1 ) { push( @{ $letters{'k'} }, { 'x' => 0, 'y' => $y }, { 'x' => 1, 'y' => $y } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'k'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 4 } ); } foreach $y ( 2 .. 3 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 6 - $y .. 7 - $y ) { push( @{ $letters{'k'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 5 .. 6 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, $y - 2 .. $y - 1 ) { push( @{ $letters{'k'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 1 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'l'} }, { 'x' => 1, 'y' => $y }, { 'x' => 2, 'y' => $y } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 3 ) { push( @{ $letters{'l'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 0 } ); } foreach $x ( 2 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'l'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 6 } ); } foreach $x ( 0, 2 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'n'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $y ( 4 .. 6 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 5 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'n'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 2, 6 ) { foreach $x ( 2 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'o'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 3 .. 5 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 5 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'o'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 2, 5 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 3 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'p'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 3 .. 4 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 2, 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'p'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $y ( 6 .. 7 ) { push( @{ $letters{'p'} }, { 'x' => 0, 'y' => $y }, { 'x' => 1, 'y' => $y } ); } foreach $x ( 0, 2 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'r'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 2 } ); } foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 5 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'r'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $y ( 4 .. 6 ) { push( @{ $letters{'r'} }, { 'x' => 0, 'y' => $y }, { 'x' => 1, 'y' => $y } ); } foreach $y ( 2, 4, 6 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 4 ) { push( @{ $letters{'s'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $x ( 0 .. 1 ) { push( @{ $letters{'s'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $x ( 4 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'s'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 5 } ); } foreach $y ( 2, 4 .. 5 ) { foreach $x ( 2 .. 3 ) { push( @{ $letters{'t'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $x ( 0 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'t'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 3 } ); } foreach $x ( 3 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'t'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 6 } ); } foreach $y ( 3 .. 5 ) { foreach $x ( 0 .. 1, 4 .. 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'u'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => $y } ); } } foreach $x ( 1 .. 3, 5 ) { push( @{ $letters{'u'} }, { 'x' => $x, 'y' => 6 } ); } } my (@characterline); { my (@s); { foreach my $k ( keys(%lpos) ) { foreach my $i ( @{ $lpos{$k} } ) { $s[$i] = $k; } } } my (@characterblock); foreach my $y ( 0 .. 8 ) { foreach my $x ( 0 ..

Update: (02-Jul-2004) Changed looping to be configurable.

    Aw heck, I just realized that I approved this for the SoPW area. Could one of the all-powerful members of Perlmonks move it to a more appropriate place? I apologize, I've spent all morning in Oracle Designer; it makes my brain hurt.
