One thing bothers me about this: The codes for punctuation are not pneumatic. This is easily fixed. The association between punctuation and letters/numbers should be changed to be:

tr[@{}$='`^"+/<>#()?\[]_|~!&%*,:;] [abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123];
based on the following phlegmatic code: At Brace CloseCurly Dollar Equals Feet Grave-accent Hat Inches Join whacK/stroKe Less-than More-than Number Open Paren Question Reverse-whack Square brackeT Underline Verticalbar Wiggle eXclaim y(Spanish for "and"). % and z are shaped the same as are * and 0. Comma has 1 "dot" while colon has 2 dots and semicolon is a bit more than colon.

I could see swapping /=k and &=y to get /=y and &=k based on similarity of shape (the whacK/stroKe connection is rather weak). *shrug*

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
