( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The OP's question does not make much sense when viewing it from a theoretical point of view (as anyone who understands Turing completeness knows and your post explains). I can as much write perl in Perl as I can carve my name onto the face of the moon with a toothpick or tattoo "I blow goats" onto the forehead of my least-favourite head of state. Both of these things would be possible if I dedicated my life to them and managed to obtain the support of a large enough community of people. I would however consider them to be practical impossibilities. Rewriting perl in Perl has pretty much the same prerequisites and is just as impossible. Do feel free to prove me wrong though :-)


Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it. -- Brian W. Kernighan

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
