    Elegant simplicity, very pleasing on the eyes.
    # Essence of this script is the dereferenced reference construct # 'Just Another perl Hacker' == ${\('Just Another Perl Hacker')} print "Just Another Perl Hacker\n" if 'Hacker' == ${\(Hacker)}; # Each line is best read from right to left. The embedding of the # derefed literals make a clever obfuscation but repeats almost # identically for each block. Got one got em all. # \u -> title case next char only # \L -> lowercase until \E # \E -> end case # $" -> $LIST_SEPERATOR default value ' ', used for ' ' # Splitting the $" onto two lines is a rather clever trick which # removes the newline which is present in the code presented below: print qq'${\(foo)}$ # split line $" syntax avoids newline here "${\(bar)} ${\(foo)}$" ${\(bar)}\n'; print qq' \u\L$ {\(J.${\(U.${\(S.${\(T)})})})} $"\E\L${\(A.${\(N.${\(O.${\(T.${\(H.${\(E.${\(R)})})})})})})} $"\E\u\L${\(P.${\(E.${\(R.${\(L)})})})} $"\E\L${\(H.${\(A.${\(C.${\(K.${\(E.${\(R)})})})})})}$/ '

[choroba]: You need square brackets for arrays
[GotToBTru]: you can certainly construct a single expression to access any part of the data structure, without using temp variables. but you might make it easier on yourself and any other poor soul who has to understand your code if you do
[thepkd]: to dereference i mean
LanX .oO( oh tempz, oh moretz)
[thepkd]: @GotToBTru Sure. But.
