Sorry, I meant characters, not letters. Lol

"Did you intend to include the variable @& in that regular expression?"

No, it's not included in there. This regex is looking for something that starts with $ and is followed by one of the characters in the list. And @ and & happen to be in the list. But if a variable starts with @, it won't match. But now that I carefully looked at this part of the code, I noticed that if a character appears to be a variable but is not, then it gets eliminated from the double-quoted string instead of being left alone unchanged. I fixed that.

Today I tried to modify the code to replace variables like $^A, but this caused warnings to appear when running the obfuscated code, because for some reason $^A is treated almost like $a or $b (I have never used these variables ever and don't even understand what they are for) but they apparently don't need to be declared. But if I come up with a new variable such as $XX and start using it in place of $^A, then perl is going to say wait a minute, you didn't declare $XX anywhere in the code, you just started using it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
