This draws a JAPH-donut ... I hope you like it ;-)

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my ($pi,$r,$str)=( atan2(1,1)*4,21,"just". " another perl hacker "); my $s=$r;$_[$_]=" "x(4*$r+1 )."\n" for(0..(2*$r+1));while ($s-=.5){next if($s<int(.5*$r ));foreach(0..359){my($x,$y)= (int(.5+(2*$r)+(2*$s*cos(($pi /180)*$_))),int(.5+$r+($s*sin (($pi/180) *$_)))); substr( $_[$y],$x,1)=substr($str, ($x%length($str)),1); }} print"@_";
