in reply to Ook interpreter

That's quite cool and I'd heard of BF but not Ook! This might be a stupid follow up, but I'm curious if there is an Ook! emitter anywhere. So instead of giving Ook! and getting Perl, you'd give it Perl and get Ook! Scanning the POD, I didn't see that functionality in the CPAN modules cog listed. (Maybe there is no way to do a perfect one--only perl can parse Perl and all--but any bit would be interesting/fun.)

    Ook is Turing Complete so there should be no problem parsing Perl into Ook. I leave that as a exercise for the reader however.

    Perl is Huffman encoded by design.

    I have written an Ook! generator that creates an Ook! program to print a given string. It is currently in GrandFather's scratchpad if you are interested. Now appended to OP.
