Following on from a discussion about token separation in Python today, one of my colleagues
put forward the idea of employing the ASCII bell character (^G
) to be used for token separation within Perl scripts. Not one to be encouraged, I have written the following code which does just that, employs the ASCII bell character for token separation within Perl scripts.
my @array = ( 'Hello', 'World!' )^G
While not a replacement for Filter::Simple
, this code does provide a working proof-of-concept and offers yet another way by which I can have fun with my colleagues during code reviews :-)
perl -le 'print+unpack("N",pack("B32","00000000000000000000001001000110"))'
