Try running this first without arguments (or with an argument of '0').  Then try it with a numeric argument of '1' or '2'.   (Update: The values '2005' and '2006' also work in place of '1' and '2').

Happy New Year to all at Perlmonks!

    very, very nice :)

    I checked with my wife (a native chinese), and she tells me that the characters are "old-style" chinese, usually referred to as Traditional Chinese (as opposed to Simplified, which is more commonly used). Although I think I saw you mention something in the CB about them being Japanese. I think Japanese and Traditional Chinese characters are very similar.

    Errr, on my fedora box with Perl 5.8.5, I just get everything up to the p; line printed. Am I missing something?

    cLive ;-)

    edit: yes I am - I didn't read the instructions. D'oh.

      That's normal if you don't give a numeric argument. It's supposed to look like balloons. Also try giving a numeric argument of "1" or "2".

    It's not exactly a "spoiler" in the usual sense, but for anyone interested, here is the program I used to generate the obfuscation.
