in reply to JAPH palindrome.

Cute idea, but the reverse of this line:

print fi ('Just another Perl hacker,');
is not what you have written; it's this unfortunate thing:
;)',rekcah lreP rehtona tsuJ'( if tnirp
But the code you have does not rely on those parentheses being there, so you are safe.

Also, you have no space in X__ATAD__, but you have a space in __DATA__ X. I guess the "plain-language" definition of a palindrome does ignore spaces. Presumably that can only make the task easier in Perl..

    Thanks, I didn't notice the inverted parenthesis, obviously. That's what I get for checking manually. I also didn't realize, as this script evolved, that I no longer had use for the parenthesis at all. At one point, adding them was necessary for a successful compile.

    Yes, I went with the rule that whitespace and newlines did not have to match.
