Not sure of my fascination with this, but liverpole's Spatial Japh got me interested in animated ascii graphics. That, along with greats such as How to (ab)use map and How to (ab)use substr and my own contribution to the (ab)use series (Ab)using fo(u)r...... all inspired me to abuse 'or':

#!/usr/bin/perl $oar=3;$nor=0;$xOr=0;use Time::HiRes qw(usleep );$oAr=5;sub or{for my$xor(0 ..9){for my$or(0..65){$ oar[$xor][$or]=' '}}}%or=(aor=>2 ,bor=>4,cor=>3,dor=>4,eor =>6,gor=>7 ,hor =>6, jor=>8 ,lor=> 27,mor=> 30, nor => 61, oor => 63,por=> 64 ,qor =>65); while( 1){ for$ OR(a..d ){if(( $OR eq 'b')or($ OR eq'c' )){$or {aor}++ ;$or{cor }++;$or{ dor}++; $or{eor} --;$ or{ gor}--;$ or{jor} --;}else {$or{aor }--;$or{ cor}--; $or{dor} --;$ or{ eor}++;$ or{gor}++;$ or{jor}++;}& or;for([ $or{aor} ,$or{bor}],[$or{aor},$or{ lor}],[$ or{bor}, $or{mor}],[$ or{bor}, $or{nor} ],[$ or{ cor},$or{ oor}],[ $or{cor} ,$or{por }],[$or{ dor},$ or{qor}] ,[$ or { eor},$or {qor}] ,[$ or { gor } ,$ or{por}] ,[$or{ gor},$or {oor}],[ $or{hor} ,$ or { nor}],[ $ or{hor},$ or{mor}] ,[$ or{ jor},$ or{ lor}],[$or {jor },$ or{bor}], [$or{hor},1 ],[$or{bor} ,1],[$or{ aor},$ or{ bor}]){nor($ _->[0],$_->[ 1])}oar ($ OR);usleep( 300000);}}sub ore{$OR=shift ;$oar=3;if( $OR eq'a'){$ oR=sub{uc shift}}if($OR eq'b'){$oR= sub{shift}} if($OR eq'c' ){$ oR=sub{'-'}}if($ OR eq'd'){$oR= sub{shift}} $yor=',rekc' .'ah '.'lraoP '.'rehtona tsuJ';@ or =split//,~~ reverse$yor; for($oar..((length$yor)+$ oar-1)){$ oar[$oAr][$ oar++]=&{$oR }(shift@or)}}sub nor{($xor,$or)=@_; if(($xOr!=0 )&&($nor!=0) ){while(($xOr!=$or)or($nor!=$xor)){ if($xOr<$or ){$xOr++}if( $nor<$xor){$nor++}if($xOr>$or){$xOr --}if($nor> $xor){$nor-- }$oar[$nor][$xOr]='*'}}$xOr=$or;$ nor=$ xor } sub oar{ore( shift);$ore=0;print"\e[2J\e[H\n" ;for(@oar){ for(@{$oar[$ ore]}){print"$oar[$ore][$orr]" ;$orr++ } $ ore++;$orr=0 ; # do not { or not # nor # { # oar # } # ore # { # or # oar # or } # ; ; $# or $# ; print "\n" } }# or # or # ore # nor # or # oar # or # ; # or { # } } # { # xor # nor # or # oar # } orr # ore # xor # nor #

It might not work on windows, but I can't test there anyhow.

And in case you can't tell, it's sort of supposed to be rotating :)

Enjoy!
