Elvie #010 is online now: http://peppertop.com/elvie/comic/elvie-010/


Douglas Adams once said "I don't make jokes in base 13", but we do make jokes in Perl! LV #15 is starting to land on people's doorsteps now, so to save you having to transcribe the code from the Elvie strip (and deal with the fact that comic fonts show lower case characters as ever-so-slightly smaller caps than upper case ones), here's the text from Larry Wall's speech bubble:

Code: Select all
$_=#@*!!
("I really don't ")
;s!d.*!!;s*re*\x74ot*;sub
_{print $_.@_[0]."\n";s!@*!!}_
("agree!")


I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to work out what Larry really said.

Thanks Huw - it's always great to hear that someone likes our work :D


It's a little overdue, but we've just posted Elvie #14 on our website: http://peppertop.com/elvie/comic/elvie-014/

In keeping with the theme of the strip, this one was produced entirely in SVG (using Inkscape), with no bitmap components. Sorry MyPaint, you weren't needed this time! It also made it a lot easier to tidy up the files for uploading to GitHub.

Elvie #15 is online now:

http://peppertop.com/elvie/comic/elvie-015/

This is the Larry Wall interview strip, which includes some obfuscated Perl in the comic. Look back a few posts and you'll find a copy of the code in this thread, should you wish to run it yourself. We've also saved it out as a separate file in our Github repository.
