Look carefully at the first line. Now try to figure out how this JAPH is encoded; when you do you'll be scared : ) And for those who can't find out, just click the readmore tag.
die unless print keys %j and open uc sqrt hex chr lstat; @_[0..100]=grep{!/[qyixd;%]/}split//,~~<0>;$\=$/;print substr join( $&,map{$$_[$[]}sort{z($$a[1])<=>z($$b[1])}map{[$_[$_],$_]}0..46),23; sub z {@h[18,28,6,12,13,20,3,23,33,35,0,10,1,9,5,32,4,8,39,45,29,14,15 +,40]= (1+\\///\\\//..$=);$h[pop];}

Well, the first line opens the script, but it also does something else. Look at each of the functions on the first line. Notice that they have the individual characters of "just another perl hacker" spread among them. This is how I generate the JAPH. So the thing that will blow you away is that the very line used to open the encoded message is infact the encoded message. It took me a many searches of man perlfunc to find functions with the right letters.

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.
