### Play with numbers

 on Jul 04, 2009 at 16:55 UTC Need Help??

An script I wrote, which outputs Japh. It decrypts \$x by multiplying 2 integers and the act like it is a binary number. The code isn't really exciting, but the way I encoded 'Japh' is kinda interesting.
```\$x = '3336703366667337000033670003'
;\$d=sub {chr unpack('N',pack (
'B32',substr(('0'x32).((shift)
* (shift)),-32) )) ;};print \${
dx( \$d, \$x) }; sub dx{ while (
\$_[1]=~/(\d{6})(\d{1})/g){\$out
.= &{ \$_[0]}(\$1 ,\$2); }\\$out;}

My output is "CooL".

```\$x = '3333373367037336703733337003'
;\$d=sub {chr unpack('N',pack (
'B32',substr(('0'x32).((shift)
* (shift)),-32) )) ;};print \${
dx( \$d, \$x) }; sub dx{ while (
\$_[1]=~/(\d{6})(\d{1})/g){\$out
.= &{ \$_[0]}(\$1 ,\$2); }\\$out;}

First, convert the number to binary. Treat the converted number as an integer (base 10) and divide by 3:

C = 1000011 / 3 = 333337

Now get the result and concatenate with 3:

333337 . 3 = 3333373

```\$x = '3333373'
;\$d=sub {chr unpack('N',pack (
'B32',substr(('0'x32).((shift)
* (shift)),-32) )) ;};print \${
dx( \$d, \$x) }; sub dx{ while (
\$_[1]=~/(\d{6})(\d{1})/g){\$out
.= &{ \$_[0]}(\$1 ,\$2); }\\$out;}

Now the output is "C", just keep concatenating numbers to \$x to form your wanted sentence!
