in reply to Yoda Speak Translator

Putting 'You are so certain' or 'So certain you are' (which should it be?) in the examples doesn't work. :(

And none of my feeble tries to add words did the trick.

That aside I love it. Big ++ for this one you will receive. :)

    Putting 'You are so certain' or 'So certain you are' (which should it be?)

    The original sentence should be, "Are you so certain?". Interogatives in general won't work because English has already inverted them, so the pattern for making them come out backwards is itself backwards. This could be solved by looking for '?' and using a modified algorithm.


    for(unpack("C*",'GGGG?GGGG?O__\?WccW?{GCw?Wcc{?Wcc~?Wcc{?~cc' .'W?')){$j=$_-63;++$a;for$p(0..7){$h[$p][$a]=$j%2;$j/=2}}for$ p(0..7){for$a(1..45){$_=($h[$p-1][$a])?'#':' ';print}print$/}
