Or, if you want it on a line by itself, override flock():
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w use strict; use subs qw(flock); sub the : lvalue {my $v="A flock"}; sub flock () {'of sheep'}; chomp the flock;
It compiles. Not to anything useful, but it compiles. It even runs. A bit like a flock of sheep, actually ;)

    Ok, so once again I find myself killing a few minutes working with someone else's code. *Smiles*

    I went ahead and overrode chomp to make it chomp the flock.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use subs qw(chomp flock); my @gFlock=(1..10); sub chomp { pop @gFlock; } sub the { 'My flock is: ',shift,"\n"; } sub flock { join(' ',@gFlock); } while (flock) { print the flock; chomp the flock; }
