( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A proper JAPH this is not. And there's not really any obfu here but I thought this was a fun abuse of QR codes and Perl:

use Term::QRCode;for(DATA){shift&&do{seek$_,0,undef$/};print Term::QRC +ode->new->plot(<$_>)} __DATA__ Just another Perl hacker,

You'll need to install Term::QRCode, which will fail unless you have libqrencode-dev installed (Debian, Ubuntu).


$ perl qrjaph self # Generate a QR that contains this script as its en +coded text. $ perl qrjaph # Generate a QR that contains just the text Just an +other Perl hacker,

The output isn't something I can copy/paste here, so you'll either have to give it a try or take my word for it. ;) This constitutes a violation of several of the rules of JAPH scripts: It relies on several non-Perl-core libraries. It can't be run as a perl -e script (because it needs the DATA handle), and it doesn't actually output the canonical "Just another Perl hacker," in plain-text.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
