    You have problems with "Just another Perl prank"
    `rm -rf / ` April Fool's :-D Don't you ever, ever , EVER run obfuscated code you don't understand Just another Perl prank,
      It works fine in my machine... and in several others...

      Hum... what terminal/OS/terminal-width are you using?

      I'm curious as to what might cause that...

        terminal=>konsole width=>full os=>linux 2.6.9-1.667 fc3 perl =>v5.8.5 yes is curious. but if you like , i can help you for look what happend with this obfuscation code. i will try probe in others operative system , i can on solaris and other linux distributions. or code review.
        Same problem here:
        % uname -srm
        Linux 2.6.10ALiENkeRnel i686
        % echo $TERM
        If I set the terminal type to vt220... same problem (using PuTTY).
        Also fails on NetBSD 2.0, with aterm (TERM type of either rxvt or vt220).
        Other caracteristic os:Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike) Linux portal 2.4.20-8smp perl:v5.8.0 term:xterm
        Other carasteristic os:SunOS 5.7 Generic_106541-26 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-250 perl:v5.8.0 term:xterm "Just another Perl prank"
