Perl spew is nice. ;-) I was originally playing around with these:
perl -peek filename
perl -peer filename
but I settled on the polite version.
I think that the best example of a Perl program without a program is the following snippet by Abigail
which strips blank lines from a file:
perl -li -00pe0 filename
The following does nothing at all:
perl -alien -sex -Fiend
Perhaps I could expand this into a poem. KM
would it qualify?
My final effort in the useless non-use of cat competition:
perl -peruse filename
