does this not work any more, or do I have something wrong with my perl install? lacrymology@Optimus:~$ ./listen syntax error at ./listen line 26, near "not," Execution of ./listen aborted due to compilation errors.

    It doesn't work for me on:
    This is perl, v5.8.9 built for x86_64-linux

    I get the same error as you do. Your perl install is probably fine. This poem may never have compiled. It does compile when I delete the comma after "not".
