in reply to perl v/s C

The first time I saw the C version of this, I was amazed.  It was my first experience with obfuscated code in any language.

Here's my attempt at a Perlish version:

sub __{$_[0]=~y-=#&!~_`'.+,/<>():;?- .,eintsrahgldmfopv-;print@_} sub _{($,,$:)=split/=/,$_[0],2;$* =$*?"$:$*":$:;__ "O_=`,!=$,=>+y=:)=C,r~'`(+'=(y=`.u!=<:?!=/+?!=`:=(!$/$*#$/$/"}map{_$_ }")~.'`=+=;+.`.~>/!=~_=+=;!+.=`.!!","'!c:_>=`w:=`u.`<!=>:?!'=+_>=" ,"`,~.>=`,.!!=).!_c,=,!_'&=","):u.`,=):u.=c+<<~_/=b~.>'&$/" ,")~)`,=)~?!=/:<>!_=.~_/'&=","'~x`,='~x=/!!'!=+-<+y~_/&=" ,"'!?!_`,='!?!_='w+_'=+-'w~((~_/&$/","!~/,`,=!~/,`=(+~>'=+-(~<k~_/&=" ,"_~_`,=_~_!=<+>~!'=>+_c~_/&=","`!_`,=`!_=<:.>'=+-<!+;~_/&$/" ,"!<!?!_`,=!<!?!_=;~;!.'=;~;~_/&=","`w!<)`,=`w!<?!=>.u((!.'=>.u((~_/&= +"

    Wow, this is 90 chars shorter than what I get if I LZ77-compress it (see this old obfu of mine: LZ77 compression).

    Kudos liverpole,

    I knew one of the monk here could write the same with perl and am happy to see a result of my objective of posting it here. I have seen other obfuscations here and the best ever would be ...the Saturn rings ... which almost everyone has made it the best node ...

    happy to just be here ( and 'hear' the prayers of other monks ), more happiness to contribute and much more happiness if i am blessed with a long life in this monastery.
