This makes me wonder what a Klingon distribution of Perl would look like. First, it would probably be called something like Battle Perl.

  • Certainly functions like exec, chop, chomp, kill, split would take on new definitions.
  • Some functions would probably be renamed, ie seek would become hunt
  • Others such as sleep may disappear altogether

As for die it could only have two possible arguments:

die ('without honor'); # exits quietly after deleting its own source code die ('with honor'); # forcibly terminates process after wreaking havoc with OS and hardwar +e
