Chomped JAPH

Here's my second post of a "JAPH". Go easy on me. ;) If you figure it out post a reply, and definately if you have suggestions on how it could be improved upon, I'd love to hear. This continues to be a learning experience for me.

For reasons obvious to those who have figured out how this tidbit works, it doesn't fit into the customary four lines of a JAPH. But it will still execute from the shell prompt as perl -e 'pasted code'
Fun huh? It was at least as difficult to implement as my morse code JAPH, posted a few days ago, and takes considerably more time to execute as there is a lot more going on in the creation of the text. But efficiency isn't the goal of a JAPH, now is it? ;)

If you cut and paste it, be sure to turn it into a one-liner. Any whitespace, including EOL (\n) is going to be significant, and adding EOL's to the literal would probably break it.

I've tested it under Perl 5.6.1 on a Linux-powered Sharp Zaurus PDA, on my Win98 machine with Perl 5.8.0, and on my ISP's Unix based system with Perl 5.8.0.

Here's the code. Enjoy!

    I'm going to reply to my own post here to post an updated version of the preceeding JAPH. It does the same thing, and still uses chomp as its engine, but now the actual script is shorter, more obfuscated, and pulls a couple of Perl tricks that the previous version didn't attempt.

    Here's the updated version. Post a reply if you figure it out, or if you have comments that might nudge me along my quest for wisdom. ;)
