in reply to Obfuscation is

ha-- this is a coincidence to see this quiz today!

this morning i was showing a perl program -which i thought was a pretty basic, straighforward program- to a friend who's primarily a C++ programmer. although he uses perl to do some basic shell script stuff, i got a nice "what the heck are you DOING?" reaction. i guess he doesn't yet use references to hashes of hashes of arrays & write 3 line regexen to do his work. (;

it was a funny reminder to me that what isn't obfuscated to a perl programmer is totally obfuscated to a the poor folks who have to use other languages. -- cat
