( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Two years ago I joined PerlMonks. Although I was already an experienced programmer, my Perl ability was very crude.

Two years of reading, writing, answering, proposing, and discussing has been enormously beneficial for my coding skills.

I should say how grateful I feel to the many Monks who have been helpful during these 2 years, but the list would be too long, and I wouldn't want to forget anybody. Therefore, instead of posting a meditation, I decided to write an obfu, whose output will tell how I feel for the Monastery as a whole.

The script may take a few seconds to come up with the output. Please, be patient.

Happy coding

update davido reports that this script doesn't agree with Perl 5.8.0 on a Win98 system, making the machine exhaust its memory.
I am sorry about that, but I was only able to test it under WinXP, Win2000, cygwin, Linux Debian and Mandrake 2.4.18 and 2.4.21. It worked well.
