Monk Levels

on Jul 24, 2001 at 15:10 UTC ( #99288=poem: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A reasonable tribute (i think) to the voting/experiance/level system here in the monastery , enjoy :
#!/usr/bin/perl bless \@monks; $initiate = recv(MONASTERY,$enlightenment,$daily,0); $novice = seek(MONASTERY,$enlightenment,0); $acolyte = sleep && eat && study $SOPW && redo; $scribe = require disipline; $monk = print MONASTERY rand($wisdom); $friar = accept(MONASTERY,applause); $abbot = seek(MONASTERY,$enlightenment,2); $bishop = join 'E','d','i','t','o','r','s'; $pontiff = push @monks, $improve; $saint = 1;

remeber the immortal word's of Socrates who said, "I drank what ?"

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Forgive my ignorance, but does not the ultimate level of zen enligtenment suggest $saint = 0;?

    That reminds me of this koan I heard about a zen master, his disciple, and a rabbi...

      you are very correct. At the time of writting a think i was using the "return true on success" logic of perl to imply 1 meant successful enlightenment ... but i think 0 might be better ;)
      Thus spake the Master Programmer:
      "When you have learned to snatch the error code from the trap frame, it will be time for you to leave."
      -- The Tao of Programming
        $saint = "0 but true"; #Everybody wins

        perl -pe "s/\b;([st])/'\1/mg"

      hmmm, $saint = $0; wouldn't be wrong, either
      Well, that's my $.02 worth. No, for refunds you'll have to check our customer service department.

    $bishop   = join 'E','d','i','t','o','r','s';
    Funny, I don't seem to recall anyone here ever becoming a dEiEtEoErEs ;-)
                   s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print

      No, you wouldn't have. They are a secretive and powerful group, these dEiEtEoErEs; none who look upon their sigs are ever seen again!

      for(split(" ","tsuJ rehtonA lreP rekcaH")){print reverse . " "}print "\b.\n";

    sadly it is not rooted in reality ;($bishop   = join 'E','d','i','t','o','r','s'; I wish ;)
      Consider this my attempt at subtle subversion of the system.
