Well, the word "Perl" should come out right as long as $=/($*+$,)+$| equals 11 and $; equals 0.

By the time the code gets there, $| is 1, $* is 2 and $, is 4, so $=/($*+$,)+$| = 60/(4+2)+1 which in turn equals 11. In your case, the result of that operation is probably returning 27 instead of 11 (if I did my calculations right).

One of those four variables is not getting the proper value it should. Try this: in the code, right before $a="\104\101\124\101", add something like print"<$=|$*|$,|$||$;>\n";, and then we'll be able to see what's wrong :-)

The correct output for that code should be <60|2|4|1|>.

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.
