in thread Prime Time for an Obfuscation

It tries to create a list containing 2..sqrt(1234567890123111). So it starts to allocate 33.5M entries, taking a long time to spin as much RAM into place as it can, before it (I presume) dies (having caused way too much other stuff to swap out). Is that what you mean by "problem"? :)

[Corion]: Heh. Perl heredocs are nasty - Filter::Simple doesn't know whether the line continued after the heredoc or not. The heredoc payload starts on the next line.
[Corion]: So currently, Filter::Simple mangles your code/line numbers if you use heredocs ;)
