Here is a minor obfu which may be useful in replies to homework:

{$_=qq,r\@56O4\@FCE6DJO\@7OE96O!6C=>\@?<DO|@?2DE6CJ\n,,y, -},O-} -N,,p +rint}

Update: I decided I didn't like the adjacent commas and assignment of $_:

{undef,s,$_,r\@56O4\@FCE6DJO\@7OE96O!6C=>\@?<DO|@?2DE6CJ\n,x,y, -},O-} + -N,d,print}
Can anyone suggest an alternate message with two 'L's in it? That would balance braces. Capitolizing 'Monks' would wreck the nice => that appears by magic of rot47.

After Compline,

    That brings up a question i've been meaning to ask for a while.... Which of the following is correct (or perhaps cannonical)?
    • Perl Monks
    • PerlMonks
    • Perlmonks
    • perlmonks
    • perl monks
    BTW, nice obfu..... I'm off to defu it now.

    Update: Defu:

    $_ = "r\@56O4\@FCE6DJO\@7OE96O!6C=>\@?<DO|@?2DE6CJ\n"; tr/ -}/O-} -N/; print $_;
    of course the *evil* part of this fu is still there, namely that in the the tr, '-' isn't literal.


      Perl Monks, PerlMonks, perlmonks, and PM are all canonical. From the banner graphic in the upper-right, we see "Perl Monks". From the nodelets down the side, "the monastery", "... the Monastery", "Perl Monks Site FAQ", "Perl Monks User...", "Perl Monks Merchandise", "Buy PerlMonks Gear..." (your nodelets may vary). From the PM Merchandise banner ad (upper left), "PerlMonks Merchandise". From the page footer "PerlMonks somehow...". And of course, there is the URL itself, "perlmonks".

      I guess there's more than one way to do it. :)

        BTW, both Perl Mongers and Perl Monks being PM is rather annoying. Then again, perl can sometimes go well over the brink of ambiguity. That's what makes the parser and lexer feedback into eachother.

      I think any of them is fine, so long as one always uses the canonical spelling of 'monestary' :)
