This isn't highly obfuscated, in fact you should be able to work it out in a couple seconds pretty easily. The comments are amusing =)
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w use strict; ;# This is a pail of painful perl. It includes things that cannot be, ;# and wierdness that doesn't add up. It *will* run... ;# First they declare the $, can you do that? local $; ;# Did you know you can assign a sub to a $? $ *= sub {$ -= rand 2000000}; $ .= sub {$ --=(int $-)/2}; ;# Can even do bit operations against $! $ |= sub {qw/higher/}; $ ^= sub {qw/lower/}; ;# How about a multiplication by a dereferenced anonymous array? ;# (that has a concatenation with another deref'd anon array!) ;# And what's this about $ being a subroutine? $ * ->( $(), $ .->($) ); ;# This is where is gets bizarre: worthless markers with no gotos, ;# joining something that's not an array; you're on your own. ;# (i put a question mark next to the ones i didn't understand...) { print '$ ' and chomp( $ == <STDIN> ); $ =<=> $ -? print join '', $ =< $ -? $ | ->($) ): $ ^ ->() ,"\n": last; redo; } ;# FINALLY! A normal statement! print "correct.\n";
