Just Another Larry

on Dec 10, 2002 at 12:36 UTC ( #218774=obfuscated: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I don't know if anyone's done this before. Not particularily obfuscated, and it seems rather obvious (and even sycophantic <g>), but just in case it *is* original...

    Come on, is Larry really "just another Perl hacker?" :)

    Hands down, the coolest obfu I've seen. BRAVO!
    word (wrd)
    interj. Slang. Used to express approval or an affirmative response to
    something. Sometimes used with up. Source

      The code consists of only 1 (not-very-obfuscated) line:

      $P=~s/\s//g;$P=~s/X/ /g;foreach(0..23){print substr($P,$_*98,1);}

      Surely you've seen bet ter?

        sure sure - that wasn't the point - hence the "not really very obfuscated at all" disclaimer:) ....and indeed, my vote goes to the spiral...
        I forgot about the camel and had not seen the spiral (which didn't work that well in my command line, but was still cool).

[Corion]: Uiiih! Let's Encrypt will start issuing wildcard certificates, that's cool!
[ambrus]: Corion: no, backwards. It's possible in the general case, but not in the specific case of bad data we have. Which is why it's harder to explain.
[marto]: that reminds me, to donate...
[ambrus]: If it was possible in this specific case, then the burden to argue for that would be his.
[Corion]: ambrus: Ah, but he's the boss, so the burden to show that it's impossible still lies on you :-)
[Corion]: ambrus: I would work with him through an example
