in thread secret code generator

Easier to understand? Debateable. I feel that this

my @chars = ("a".."z", "A".."Z", 0..9 , split //, qq(!"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~));

looks a bit messy and it is difficult to see at a glance, or even with a long stare, if you've got them all. In fact, I think tilly will have missed one since qq{...} is going to lose the backslash so q{...} might have been better.

$ perl -le 'print for split m{}, qq{!@#{}[\]&*};' ! @ # { } [ ] & * $ perl -le 'print for split m{}, q{!@#{}[\]&*};' ! @ # { } [ \ ] & * $

Cheers,
