### Cyclical Japh

This obfuscation was a good chance for me to become more familiar with the Date::Calc module.

(Update:  I should have made this more clear -- as my coworker discovered this morning -- you need to actually have Date::Calc installed, otherwise the program won't produce any output.)

The script takes either a single argument, in the form of a date (eg. "8/22/98" or "Aug-22-1998"), or two dates (earlier one first).

And the purpose of the program is ...

... displaying biorhythms.  Try giving your birthdate as a single argument and it will display your biorhythm chart for the current date.  Giving a second date argument will display your biorhythm for that date instead.  Optionally, a third argument will specify the total number of days to display.

The 3 cycles are P=Physical (23 days), E=Emotional (28 days) and I=Intellectual (33 days).

```         s''us                  e`Date               ::Cal
c`qw|               :all|;su        b`J{3

++liverpole, very nice! I really like how the layout of the obfu matches the output (though that's hardly surprising for you!)

Note, for maximal effect, anyone running this should have their terminal at least 49 lines high...

... as it appears the default is to print about 48 days worth of biorhythms.

As an aside, maybe this explains why I'm having a rotten week, I typed in my birthday and it looks like my "P" and "E" are at all time lows, and my "I" is halfway toward the bottom as well. 8-|

Update: The following has been tucked away in case it acts as a bit of a spoiler:

--chargrill
```s**lil*;  \$*=join'',sort split q**;  s;.*;grr; &&s+(.(.)).+\$2\$1+; \$; =
qq-\$_-;s,.*,ahc,;\$,.=chop for split q,,,reverse;print for(\$,,\$;,\$*,\$/)

liverpole,
The rythms of your posts always amaze me. Now I know why I feel like a bio hazard this week. My head is still warped by the signs! LOL

Great presentation too! A definite ++ in my book!

Pure art!
