in reply to Pig Latin

It seems ungood that there's no CPAN module for Pig Latin, at least none that I could find... so I shamelessly munged Lingua::Bork and this thread.

package Lingua::PigLatin; use strict; use warnings; require Exporter; use vars qw(@ISA %EXPORT_TAGS @EXPORT_OK $VERSION); @ISA = qw(Exporter); %EXPORT_TAGS = ( 'all' => [ 'piglatin' ] ); @EXPORT_OK = ( @{ $EXPORT_TAGS{'all'} } ); $VERSION = '0.01'; sub new { my $class = shift; bless {}, ref($class)||$class; } sub piglatin { local $_ = shift; local $_ = shift if ref($_); s/\b(qu|[cgpstw]h # First syllable, including digraphs |[^\W0-9_aeiou]) # Unless it begins with a vowel or number ?([a-z]+)/ # Store the rest of the word in a variable $1?"$2$1ay" # move the first syllable and add -ay :"$2way" # unless it should get -way instead /iegx; return $_; } 1; __END__ =head1 NAME Lingua::PigLatin - Perl extension for Pig Latin =head1 SYNOPSIS use Lingua::PigLatin 'piglatin'; print piglatin("Put the candle back.") =head1 DESCRIPTION igpay atinlay. =head1 EXPORT None by default. Can export piglatin function for convenience. =head1 AUTHOR Jack Coates, E<lt>jack@monkeynoodle.orgE<gt> =head1 SEE ALSO =head1 KNOWN PROBLEMS Contractions. This man page is not in Pig Latin. =cut

I haven't uploaded it to CPAN yet, I think I'll mess around with it a little first. Maybe some tests...

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
