I can't figure out why that code even compiles. Assigning to chomp should result in the following error: Can't modify scalar safe chop in scalar assignment... But, this error doesn't occur when assigning to chomp if the argument to chomp is an assignment from a filehandle read. Some sort of obscure parsing bug...

Here's what your code should look like:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Text::Bastardize; chomp(my $line = <>); my $latin = Text::Bastardize->new(); $latin->charge($line); print $latin->pig(),"\n";
