"Just another Perl Hacker"
A "JAPH" is a small Perl program that prints "Just another Perl Hacker". The code should be somehow or other obscure, illegible, obfuscated or formatted funnily. My favourite web resources on JAPHs are: o Abigail's brilliant "slides" on JAPHs and other weird stuff. (Abigail is IMO one of the greatest masters of JAPH.) o An Obfuscated Perl Contest Entry by Mark Jason Dominus with detailed explanation. o A CPAN archive of 224 JAPHs. My 5 JAPHs are just experiments. Needless to say, they do not approach the quality of the JAPHs from the sources above. JAPH 1 JAPH 2 JAPH 3 JAPH 4 JAPH 5
