Weird,

I believe one could come up with pretty much anything and it'll fit your description. Just the other day I wrote this line of code,
my $max_lines = 100; . . . while ($line--) { . . . # do stuff . . . }
So, basically, variable $max_lines leaves variable $line in the dumps if you consider $line-- as a variable loosing HP, {GRIN}.

UPDATE:

Or how abut this:
my $playera = 100; my $playerb = 100; print "player A HP | player B HP\n"; while (1) { $playera -= rand(10); $playerb -= rand(10); print "$playera | $playerb\n"; die (($playera < $playerb) ? "player A lost!" : "player B lost!") if ($playera < 0 || $playerb < 0); }
This 'game' playes out as follows:
player A HP | player B HP 94.0023803710938 | 99.3478393554688 88.4292602539063 | 96.0552978515625 88.1494140625 | 94.9520874023438 86.5380859375 | 93.8046264648438 82.1652221679688 | 84.6536254882813 75.5804443359375 | 76.0702514648438 69.7055053710938 | 75.4898071289063 67.3040771484375 | 68.40087890625 63.6215209960938 | 64.7930908203125 58.9315795898438 | 60.8502197265625 50.4647827148438 | 57.1435546875 40.8901977539063 | 49.0029907226563 34.7552490234375 | 39.5355224609375 27.4127197265625 | 33.8937377929688 24.0670776367188 | 31.5869140625 19.4973754882813 | 22.3440551757813 10.3622436523438 | 14.5086669921875 9.0966796875 | 11.1148071289063 7.37579345703125 | 9.4158935546875 2.77679443359375 | 0.14801025390625 -1.7657470703125 | -7.55615234375 player B lost! at temp.pl line 11.
you says: "The barer the bones, the better"

I guess my code is as 'bare' as you can get (unless some monk out there wants to challange me)! ;-)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
