I have just released V.01 of the yoda speak (yodish) translator.

Things that will be added site:

  • Papers on translating Yodaish
  • A downloadable module
  • Suggestion Box (until them /msg me)
  • Graphics :)
  • Things added to the module:

  • More accurate results
  • Handling contractions
  • Translating back to english

    Just me, the boy and these two monks, no questions asked.

      #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @sentences = ('I will teach you', 'The truth is out there', 'That is an Imperial shuttle', 'My husband is giant dork', 'These fish are tasty', 'When you reach 900 years, you will not look as good' +, 'I can help you', 'You see the future', 'The future is always in motion', 'There is no try', 'You have found someone, hmmm', 'It can save you', 'Master Obi-Wan has lost a planet', 'It is difficult to see' ); foreach (@sentences) { my $speak=yoda($_); $speak =~ s/ i / I /g; print "$speak\n"; } sub yoda { my ($sentence) = @_; my $Pivot=join '|', qw/is be will show do try are teach have look +help see can learn has/; # Move along, nothing to see here return $sentence unless ($sentence=~/\b$Pivot\b/); # Rearrange our words $sentence="$' $`$&"; # Clear leading spaces and Capitalise $sentence =~ s/^\s+//; $sentence = ucfirst(lc($sentence)); }
        Very good, but you miss "has" to translate Lost a planet master obi-wan has which leaves obi-wan lowercase ;) Also there is a t missing from $pivot and a weird char at the end of sentenceX)) in $sentence = ucfirst(lc($sentence));
          It seems to be the cut and paste action I used that messed it up. I got the perl rewritten in JavaScript if anyone's interested
