in reply to B::Deobfuscate - Deobfuscates symbol names

I enjoyed the controversy that helped give birth to this fine bit of kit - well done for showing him the door in a way that does credit to the community. I just wanted to suggest proper names for your vars. I quite often use proper names for variables in development - I find them euphonious and easy to remember. @bob = ($sally,$eric,$tarquin). Or even get the module to tell the user how many var names it needs, so he/she can input his/her own list of memorable phonemes. Or whatever - you've probably had enough of it!

    My CVS copy is going to have a built in dictionary of words. Right now it uses the PGP phoneme set but I can't use that dictionary because I think RSA Security owns it. I like your proper-name suggestion and I'll likely incorporate it. I'm going to rework it somewhat so that other modules can supply their own dictionaries. I still want that Acme::Floral (currently a dead link) slot. BTW, was that you that mass upvoted me in that thread just now?

    Updated: Acme::Floral has been created.
