In Russia, a middle name is always a father's name with gender endings. For instance, my father's name is Aleksandr, so my Father, hence middle, name is Aleksandrovich, on the other hand, if I was a girl, my father name would be Aleksandrovna. In addition to ovich and ovna endings, there is a variation evich, evna, depending on which name is used. This is just a fun brainstorm, so I, to be quick, only did ovich, ovna. In context with english names:
@Michael = ('Michaelovich', 'Michaelovna);
or
my @genderEnding = ('ovich', 'ovna'); my @genderType = ('Male', 'Female'); my $genderSelected = 1; my $fathersName = &promptConsole("What's your father's name"); my $gender = &promptConsole("What's your gender"); for my $gen (qw{m male man boy}){ $genderSelected = 0 if(lc($gender) eq $gen); } print "Since, you are $genderType[$genderSelected], your father (middl +e) name is $fathersName$genderEnding[$genderSelected]\n"; sub promptConsole{ print shift, ": "; my $in = <>; $in =~ s/[\r\n\cM]+$//; return $in; }
:)
Pardon me, I've wrote this script after voting without testing as a fun brainstorm :) and I've made a couple of bugs. People messaged me, saying that it's not working, so I've fixed it. I've misspelled sub call to $fathersName and I used <INPUT> instead of <>. I got it mixed up with an other programming language. I don't even remember which one, but here we go, the fixed version.
