This will need an xterm window ... and it's addicting to watch!

    very enjoyable :) a readable version exposes a mathematician and Knowledgeable monk:
    #!/usr/local/bin/perl sub sub { rand 39 / 999 } sub O123 { printf "" . "\e[" . "%d" . ";%d" . "" . "H%s",@_ } sub l234 { O123 $|=1,1, "\e[J" } while (1) { $c or do { l234; $u=⊂ $v=⊂ $c=3999; $b=qw/39 9 1/[int rand 3]; }; O123 11*sin($v*$c)+13, 39*cos($u*$c)+41, qw+J A P H+[$c%4]; ($a++%$b) or $c--; }
    Acolyte? Not for long...

    brilliant! I'm impressed. Thank you!

    By the way if you run it on 5.005 or thereabouts, you get an error :

    Can't use subscript on split at ./ line 18, near "3]"<br> (Might be a runaway multi-line // string starting on line 16)<br> Can't use subscript on split at ./ line 22, near "4]"<br>

    It's fine on 5.8.5 though

    I finally mentally parsed the Perl, but the math is still beyond me. I'm really impressed. Excellently done.

    It works in Windows if use Win32::Console::ANSI; is added. Pretty cool!
      Thanks so much for the info, ikegami. That's the first I'd ever heard of that module -- works like a charm!  I created a color version which runs under Linux -and- Windows.
