Cyclical Japh

This obfuscation was a good chance for me to become more familiar with the Date::Calc module.

(Update:  I should have made this more clear -- as my coworker discovered this morning -- you need to actually have Date::Calc installed, otherwise the program won't produce any output.)

The script takes either a single argument, in the form of a date (eg. "8/22/98" or "Aug-22-1998"), or two dates (earlier one first).

And the purpose of the program is ...

s''us e`Date ::Cal c`qw| :all|;su b`J{3 0+31* sin($ H*2/pop)} sub`A {Date _to_D ays@_ [0..2 ]}sub`P{$ ARGV[ pop]} sub`H {($_= P+pop)?A+D ecode _Date _US($_ ):A+T oday} sub`_{"|". Date_ to_Te xt+Ad d_Del ta_Da ys+(1 )x3,p op}su b`b{@ _=(2+ $A==$ J?"-" :$")x 61;$_ [30]= qw/h` j`a`p /[$P% 4];$_ [J+23] ="P"; $_[J+ 28]="E ";$_[ J+33] ="I"; warn" |".jo in("" ,@_). _($P+ ++-++ $H*0- 1).$/ ;--$J &&&b} `$J=( P+2)| |48;$ A=$J/2-1; $P=-$ A+H+1 ;b`if $H=$P -(H+0 )';s* [\s#] **gx; s\`\$ "\g ;eval

    ++liverpole, very nice! I really like how the layout of the obfu matches the output (though that's hardly surprising for you!)

    Note, for maximal effect, anyone running this should have their terminal at least 49 lines high...

    As an aside, maybe this explains why I'm having a rotten week, I typed in my birthday and it looks like my "P" and "E" are at all time lows, and my "I" is halfway toward the bottom as well. 8-|

    Update: The following has been tucked away in case it acts as a bit of a spoiler:



    --chargrill
    s**lil*; $*=join'',sort split q**; s;.*;grr; &&s+(.(.)).+$2$1+; $; = qq-$_-;s,.*,ahc,;$,.=chop for split q,,,reverse;print for($,,$;,$*,$/)

    liverpole,
    The rythms of your posts always amaze me. Now I know why I feel like a bio hazard this week. My head is still warped by the signs! LOL

    Great presentation too! A definite ++ in my book!

[Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
[Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
[Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
[choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
[choroba]: beer
[choroba]: oh ok
[marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
[choroba]: Corion yeah, I probably already told you about how Bjarne Stroustrup was asked whether he still watched the new tech trends and what really impressed him
[choroba]: His reply was "I watch them, but I haven't been impressed in the last 10 years. There's been nothing new". That was 2 years ago :)
