$text was undefined at one point at which it was used, in sub main.

I think this fixes it. Replace:

my $romaji = plaque("@romaji"); my $hiragana = plaque(hiragana($text));


my $text = "@romaji"; my $romaji = plaque($text); my $hiragana = plaque(hiragana($text));

Also, since you invited comments/criticisms, I would rewrite your "pick a few" section as:

my @romaji = map { splice @syllables, int(rand @syllables), 1 } 1..25;

Other useful resources: Unicode Code page for Hiragana which I used (and I assume you did, too), along with charnames to simplify your %Hiragana generation:

my %Hiragana; use charnames qw/hiragana/; sub get_hiragana { chr charnames::vianame("HIRAGANA LETTER ".uc(shift) +) } # the standards for my $initial ('', qw/k g s z t d n m h b p m r/) { for my $final (qw/a i u e o/) { my $syl = $initial.$final; $Hiragana{$syl} = get_hiragana($syl); } } # columns with missing entries (yi, ye, wu) $Hiragana{$_} = get_hiragana($_) for qw/ya yu yo wa wi we wo n/; # small letters $Hiragana{"($_)"} = get_hiragana("small $_") for qw/a i u e o ya yu yo +/; # special cases { my @special = (qw/tsu tu shi si chi ti fu hu/, map(('j'.$_ => 'z'.$_), qw/a i u e o/), '(tsu)', 'small tu'); while (my ($syl, $uni) = splice @special, 0, 2) { $Hiragana{$syl} = get_hiragana($uni); } } delete $Hiragana{$_} for qw/tu si ti/; # delete Unicode-y names for ts +u, shi, and chi

Very cool use of Perl. Brings me back to my Nihongo days...

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
