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.

    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?)

        Beautiful!

        But, if you don't mind a little constructive critisism, the 3-D appearance of the text keeps flip-flopping as I look at it; I can't decide whether it's engraved or raised. It's probably because of the low resolution, being just enough to convey the effect.

        I think it would be cooler to have a more awesome looking slab of stone, esp. on a full-page "photo". I'm a bit rusty but I'll see if I can show you what I mean...
