    This is the one I remember from Catholic Grade School.
    #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; # keep the strict nuns happy :-) for( 1..100){ print "Hail Mary full of grace, slap the devil across the face\n"; } exec ("echo 666 > /dev/null" );

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum
      Back in the days of the C64, and the word processor, Speed Script, I got in trouble for nearly the same thing.

      "I will not do something something w/e it was"

      Copy.. paste paste paste paste paste paste.. count lines... print. This was when I was in a parochial school, and much more literal minded. :) I got in trouble. :( Again.

    Did you pray this prayer?\n";<br>

    Naaah, I didn't even read it. Just gave a peek. Not really interested in prayers.

    I used strict and warnings and I believe the she bang line should work on most modern computers

    Whoa! This is the cleanest and most correct Perl code you posted thus far, the only error being a spurious <br> tag that for perl is an attempt to read from the br filehandle:

    aleph:~ [17:41:57]$ perl -c Name "main::br" used only once: possible typo at line 30. syntax OK aleph:~ [17:42:06]$ perl >/dev/null # A better place! Name "main::br" used only once: possible typo at line 30. readline() on unopened filehandle br at line 30.

    Incidentally, for multiline strings you may be interested in HERE documents which are slightly less error prone and all in all, cleaner: look them up in perldoc perlop.

    Sorry, in this Monastery this Monk only prays to the Gods of Perl.

    I erased my original reply here because the OP was reaped as a potential troll seed, on the basis that my original reply here could therefore potentially become troll food. OK I admit I'm not a model of restraint - after all I did tell OP his machine was clearly possessed by the Devil and could only be cleansed by installing the Holy Linux upon it ;) - sometimes you just can't help it ;) ...
