A blank screen, a '.' appears bottom right...

I think that is the problem: the '.' should appear in the middle. I should have originally stated that you must run the obfu in a console window big enough so that when you cat the source code it does not wrap and you can see it all -- 90 characters wide by 46 deep should be plenty. If that turns out not to be the problem, I'd be interested to know the perl version and platform you are running (I've tested it on Linux and Windows with Perl versions 5.005, 5.6 and 5.8 (with and without warnings)).

    Size wasn't the problem, my consoles are 200x100; in fact I did try reducing it to various standard sizes to see what difference it made. Nada.

    Tye hit the nail on the head. I am in the habit of pasting obfu source directly into a command session with perl waiting for input. AS he said it makes for a very boring show.

    Once I put the code into a file and ran it.....what can I say to make up for my blaspheming?

    Saturn obfu is very, very cool!

    I'm a closet space nut. My desktop backdrop varies between the latest images from HST (It must be fixed), the Rovers, and Cassini-Huygens. It's currently The last Ultra Deep Field image (very large jpg), but if I ever get around to putting some of the C-H sequences together as a screensaver, I just might spend more time doing nothing, just so it will run.

      I'm also a space nut, with a special interest in Cosmology (big bang, inflation, baby universes, ...). I'm really looking forward to seeing what the Huygens probe discovers about the mysterious Titan. I also loved the movie Contact which has an astounding, awe-inspiring opening sequence starting from the Earth, moving past Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, ..., the Milky Way, the Local Group, until the vast scale of the Universe and its billions of galaxies is slowly revealed.

Re^3: Saturn (!STDIN)

    And you have to run the script to a file (that supports seek). It sounds like the BrowserUK fed the script to perl on STDIN, which makes for a very boring show.
