Cyclical Japh

This obfuscation was a good chance for me to become more familiar with the Date::Calc module.

(Update:  I should have made this more clear -- as my coworker discovered this morning -- you need to actually have Date::Calc installed, otherwise the program won't produce any output.)

The script takes either a single argument, in the form of a date (eg. "8/22/98" or "Aug-22-1998"), or two dates (earlier one first).

And the purpose of the program is ...

s''us e`Date ::Cal c`qw| :all|;su b`J{3 0+31* sin($ H*2/pop)} sub`A {Date _to_D ays@_ [0..2 ]}sub`P{$ ARGV[ pop]} sub`H {($_= P+pop)?A+D ecode _Date _US($_ ):A+T oday} sub`_{"|".

    ++liverpole, very nice! I really like how the layout of the obfu matches the output (though that's hardly surprising for you!)

    Note, for maximal effect, anyone running this should have their terminal at least 49 lines high...

    As an aside, maybe this explains why I'm having a rotten week, I typed in my birthday and it looks like my "P" and "E" are at all time lows, and my "I" is halfway toward the bottom as well. 8-|

    Update: The following has been tucked away in case it acts as a bit of a spoiler:

    However, it looks like my "j a p h" is at a constant level throughout ;-)

    The rythms of your posts always amaze me. Now I know why I feel like a bio hazard this week. My head is still warped by the signs! LOL

    Great presentation too! A definite ++ in my book!
