This looks best if run in a terminal window which is at least 42 lines long.  It works under both Linux and Windows.

    <joke>Im sure I have seen this face on the side of a milk carton</joke>.

    Very nice work.

    Not really hard to find out how it works, but the artwork (both the face and the letters) is great! ++

    Well done. It wasn't what I expected after running it... ++

    Okay, that tears it... I'm going to find one of those sites that converts pictures to ASCII art, and just start putting #!/usr/bin/perl in front of the results, and see what executes.

      How did you know that's what I did?!!  :-)

      In a related vein -- you could use such a method to generate "Just another Perl hacker" using the digits of pi.  Taking 2 digits at a time to represent a single ascii value (offset by <space> = ascii 32) , all you have to do is search for the correct digit sequence.  Write a program to calculate pi to that number of places, convert the next 48 digits into 24 ascii chars, and you're done!  (You probably won't get a lot of votes for it, though, as it might take a few years to run!)

      Seriously though, I'm thinking of submitting the program I used to generate Latent Japh.  I need to clean it up a little first, and add some more user options (it's amazing how much the output can change with just a little tweaking), but I'll publish it once I've gotten it cleaned up.

        I'm not a mathemagician - but I'm guessing that since pi's digits are an infinite nonrepeating sequence, then it must hold true that any other finite sequence you ever wanted to see exists somewhere in the digits of pi (possibly unfathomly deep in the numbers of pi though). So in theory, you could just fine the digit position at which the ascii codes for the sentence "Just another Perl hacker" occur naturally in order in the digits of pi, and calc down to there and then print them out.

    That's a great one. Not at all what I expected to see when run!
