I was tempted to translate the prompt and response too, but that would take it beyond the original spec:

use Lingua::Romana::Perligata; EGRESSO SCRIBE DICTUM SIC PLEASE ENTER THE STRING TO BE CIS TUM LACUNAM TUM DICTUM SIC SEARCHED FOR THE STRING MONKEY CIS TUM BIGUTTAM TUM LACUNAM. HUIC VESTIBULO PERLEGEMENTUM DA. DICTUM SIC STRING MONKEY WAS CIS TUM LACUNAM SCRIBE EGRESSO. SI HOC TUM DICEMENTUM SIC MONKEY CIS SCRUTAMENTUM TUM NULLUM PRAESTANTIAM HOCQUE TUM DEMINUEMENTUM DICEMENTUM SIC MONKEY CIS SCRUTAMENTUM TUM NULLUM PRAESTANTIAM FAC SIC EGRESSO NOT INQUEMENTUM TUM LACUNAM SCRIBE CIS. SCRIBE EGRESSO DICTUM SIC FOUND IN THE INPUT STRING CIS TUM NOVUMVERSUM.
Note that this requires the 0.55 release of Perligata, which (due to the current CPAN woes) is currently only available from my personal mirror.

    Hmmmmm...just realized that it's much more "monumental" when it's formatted properly:
    use Lingua::Romana::Perligata; EGRESSO SCRIBE DICTUM SIC PLEASE ENTER THE STRING TO BE CIS TUM LACUNAM TUM DICTUM SIC SEARCHED FOR THE STRING MONKEY CIS TUM BIGUTTAM TUM LACUNAM. HUIC VESTIBULO PERLEGEMENTUM DA. DICTUM SIC STRING MONKEY WAS CIS TUM LACUNAM SCRIBE EGRESSO. SI HOC TUM DICEMENTUM SIC MONKEY CIS SCRUTAMENTUM TUM NULLUM PRAESTANTIAM HOCQUE TUM DEMINUEMENTUM DICEMENTUM SIC MONKEY CIS SCRUTAMENTUM TUM NULLUM PRAESTANTIAM FAC SIC EGRESSO NOT INQUEMENTUM TUM LACUNAM SCRIBE CIS. SCRIBE EGRESSO DICTUM SIC FOUND IN THE INPUT STRING CIS TUM NOVUMVERSUM.
      Even better would be to ray-trace it with POV, which will easily create an object out of a text string processed through a truetype font, and then subtract that from a solid granite block. Print on a photorealistic printer.

        Like this you mean?

        (That link will only be temporary. Maybe one of the Powers-That-Be can replace this node with the image itself? Or at least cache the image somewhere permanent?)

    How about in Klingon? Did you ever get that out of alpha?
