    Good use of unpack and ord, but watch out for things that generate warnings. Some people will disagree with me, but I think that even obfuscated code should avoid warnings:
    %perl -w
    Use of uninitialized value at line 3.
    Use of uninitialized value at line 3.
    Just another Perl hacker
    BTW: the warning is from the $i in the while loop. If you add some garbage to shift your array (so that you can start from 1 instead of 0) you could preincrement $i just before your loop, or hide your initialization somewhere.Maybe monkey with $[
