Hm. Pencil, coin, ruler, credit card.

A CD seems a good choice :)

    A ruler would be shown in such a way that you see the markings, so the actual length of the ruler is irrelevant. There's still the problem that the markings could be in centimiters or inches. You can usually decide which it is from the number of subdivisions, but not always. Cds are good for the same reason: even though there are cds of smaller size than the normal, the hole is always the same.

[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
