in reply to Fun with words (Golf?)

Here's my first entry...
local $"; while (<DATA>) { s/(\w{4,})/@l=split'',$1;@m=@l[1..$#l-1];@r=map{splice@m,rand @m,1 +}@m;"$l[0]@r$l[-1]"/ge; print; } __DATA__ Down that path lies madness. On the other hand, the road to hell is pa +ved with melting snowballs. Although the Perl Slogan is There's More Than One Way to Do It, I hesi +tate to make 10 ways to do something. And don't tell me there isn't one bit of difference between null and s +pace, because that's exactly how much difference there is. Randal said it would be tough to do in sed. He didn't say he didn't un +derstand sed. Randal understands sed quite well. Which is why he uses + Perl. As usual, I'm overstating the case to knock a few neurons loose, but t +he truth is usually somewhere in the muddle, uh, middle. Of course, I reserve the right to make wholly stupid changes to Perl i +f I think they improve the language.

[Sinistral]: nail in coffin was the rant against a Schwarzian Transform
[stonecolddevin]: at best, from what i've seen, his knowledge is accurate up to maybe 2002. the sheer volume of words is mostly worthy of a downvote in most cases though i think
[erix]: ITYM Schwartzian Transform :P
[erix]: hey planetscape :)
[planetscape]: howdy stonecolddevin, erix
[Sinistral]: eric Aye. I thought I typed that wrong. All hail Randall! I listen to him on FLOSS Weekly
[Discipulus]: i think his vacuus, trombon like, absence of meaning, joined with a ostentatious style, after many years irritates the most
[erix]: easy to get wrong -- I guess that was sund's point, too :P
[Discipulus]: planetscape welcome back! (or is well comeback?)
