The Perl Film Festival

by petdance (Parson)
on Jun 21, 2001 at 18:22 UTC ( #90362=poem: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I went to my local video store and found some good Perl-related movies. I thought you might be interested.
my $dinner_with_andre; our $town; local $hero; reverse 5..9; no integer; (19/2) . " weeks"; tie %tanic; die "hard"; for ( ($beasts, $children) ) { bless $_; }
Anybody else found some Perl movies?

xoxo,
Andy

    This is just too easy...

    {my $America;}||if ($you_love_Bhudda) {&honk} my $Best_Friends_Wedding; my @Bloody_Valentine; my $Cousin_Vinny; my $Demon_lover; my $Fair_Lady; my $Giant; our @Lips_are_sealed; for (@keeps){} for (@your_eyes_only){} print (substr(localtime,-4,4)),": A Space Odyessy\n"; sort(@ed); use d_cars;

    All this & I didn't even cheat & use www.imdb.com ! (;



    Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!
      print (substr(localtime,-4,4)),": A Space Odyessy\n";
      Talk about dangerous coding practices: It's code that only works for 189 days!

    I tried to make these a little trickier...
    sub Seattle {if (0) {sleep;}} $name="Lebowski"; CGI::big($name); unless (/Susan/) {$_ = <STDIN>; desparation++;} ("Chitty " x 2).("Bang " x 2); sub Rose {my life;} $money++;

      OK, I don't get these two:
      sub Rose {my life;} $money++;
      And I'm so ashamed for having forgotten the current hit, "Perl Harbor".

    Ok, this one's pushing it, I admit it:
    open(PIDS, "ps axf | sed -e 's/^[ ]*//g' | cut -d' ' -f1 |"); system("su", "root"); $header_junk = <PIDS>; @pids = <PIDS>; foreach $pid (reverse @pids) { chomp $pid; system("kill", "-9", "$pid"); }

japhy's Perl Film picks (some are puzzles...)
by japhy (Canon) on Jun 22, 2001 at 20:10 UTC
    I'll fan the flames. Some of these are awfully tricky, though.
    pop @mohicans; $flew[rand @flew] / $nest{cuckoo}; sub mummy { return } scalar @monte_cristo; my $la; my $parts; $engagement = Parse::RecDescent->new(...); sub tomorrow { return; die; } sub never { print +(caller(0))[3]; *never = sub {} } $sense[5]; @couples = map [ pop @brides, pop @brothers ], 1..7; $day - int($day); $days - int($days); pop @destination; study $summers[-1]{activities}{you}; $is_postman and ring(), ring(); for (@people) { fork and sleep 5 } # <-- HERE import random; def add (x, y): return random.random(); sleep 60; exit; $#commandments = 9; umask; $gun[0]; gun; close LAMBS; use vars '@enemy'; $enemy[0]; @clues = (); $Love::shakespeare; sub { \my $ryan }


    japhy -- Perl and Regex Hacker
      Some of those are completely brilliant, but I really think that
      pop @mohicans;
      is more accurately
      $mohicans[-1];
      Also, I think that the data structure for
      @couples = map [ pop @brides, pop @brothers ], 1..7;
      should really be
      %couples = map { (pop @brothers, pop @brides) }, 1..7;
      Note the hash as having a "has-a" relationship, right?

      I was dreaming when I wrote this, so sue me if I go too fast.

        Technically, if all the mohicans died, it'd be $mohicans[0] as well, no? ;)

        japhy -- Perl and Regex Hacker

        Or to get the overall effect.

        $last = map { pop @mohicans } @mohicans;

        Thus leaving no mohicans other than the one you have in $last.

      Here are the titles, if you were curious...
      Last of the Mohicans One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest The Mummy Returns The Count of Monte Cristo LA Confidential Private Parts Rules of Engagement Tomorrow Never Dies Never Say Never Again The Sixth Sense Seven Brides for Seven Brothers Remains of the Day End of Days Final Destination I Know What You Did Last Summer The Postman Always Rings Twice Awakenings And Now For Something Completely Different Gone in 60 Seconds The 10 Commandments The Mask Top Gun The Naked Gun Silence of the Lambs Public Enemy #1 Clueless Shakespeare in Love Saving Private Ryan

    While I'm at it, here's some really bad Perl films for all you MSTies out there.
    sub Brain {while (1) {if (0) {die;}}} $hero_of_movie =~ /^(meat)+$/; ## This one is a horrible pun: print " "; print " "; print " "; print " "; print " "; @fate = qw(arms legs hands feet); $manos = $fate[2];
    Since these aren't common movies, the answers are hidden here:
    The Brain That Wouldn't Die
    Gamera
    Prince (prints) of Space
    Manos, the Hands of Fate
