I have a challenge for the monastery! My wife is working on a painting that makes reference to Magritte's famous Treason of Images. She requested that I provide her with the phrase "This is not a pipe." in perl.
How many different ways can you come up with to say "This is not a pipe" in syntactically correct perl. While this could take the form of a JAPH, I think that something more along the lines of my suggestions below is what she wants.</>
I'll follow up with a post once she's made up her mind as to what she likes.
/[^|]/; # Is this not a pipe?
/^[^|]$/; # Is none of this a pipe?
$this neq 'a pipe'; # $this is not 'a pipe'
# Prints this is not a pipe.
$image = 'this is a pipe';
s/is /is not /g foreach ($image);
Fixed dumb mistake in examples, thanks to thor
