Balls! Pt 2

Hi all, Apologies for posting something so similar to my previous effort, but the code is completely different in this one -
  • it doesn't use VT100 codes (except \ec which i think works everywhere),
  • everything is generated (except the shading scale) - compared with it being encoded in this
    theoretically you could make a new shape (along the lines of $x**2+$y**2+$z**2<$r**2 - which is used here)and it would work with that...
  • it actually uses closest path shading to the lightsource
It's also 1 ball of code shorter (a standard i intend to start using - 1 ball =~ 200 chars :-D ).
anyway, without further ado:

$_=q`$_=' @8GCI';@a=/./g; $j=9;$k=9;$w=25;$ c=35;$e= 8;$u=2;$v=1;{$k+=$v* =$k<6|$k>16?-1: 1;$j+=$u*=$j<9|$j>60?- 1:1;my(%l,$m,$n); for$y(0..22){for(0..70 ){$r=($_-$j)/1.6;$s= $y-$k;$d=(($_-$c)**2+( $y-$f)**2+(($w-$r**2-$ s**2)**.5-$e)**2)**.5; if($r**2+$s**2<$w){$m= $d<$m||!$m?$d:$m;$n= $d>$n?$d:$m;$l{$y}{$_} =$d;}}}print"\ec"; for$y(0..22){print$_>6 9?$/:(($d=$l{$y }{$_})?$a[($d-$m)*5/ $n]:$")fo r(0..70)}select$q, $q,$q,.1;redo}`; s#\s##g;eval

    More balls! More balls!
      Personally I think they look more like tits. But yay tits!

    Believe it or not, I sent this to a buddy of mine who is alot more experienced with Perl than I am. We tried running it but no dice (had a couple of errors during the run). I simply did a copy/paste btw.

    What exactly is this supposed to do?

    (Yes... I play a Perl noobie in R/L and T.V. ::grinz::)

      sorry to hear that - it should just work with copy and paste, but you can right click on download code and save it - then do perl (although i think ie adds some stuff that you might have to edit out).
      good luck with it.
