#5 is the way to go (if there aren't any other entries still to come). I'd like maybe something even more obscure, but #5 combines simplicity and obscurity - a feature of Perl :).

    A humble novice writes... Could one of the enlightened masters here please explain the pun in #5 ? I've never even had course to use $^ before. Is it a heresy that I had to look it up in the Gecko book, not having either Camel or Llama to hand ? -- or is that just on Slashdot ?

      A look into perlvar tells me that $^X is the name of the binary that the script was started from. Run this code to see it :

      perl -e 'print $^X'
