Acme::Rant

[ #5652 ]
Acme::Fscking::Buckaroo.

Call me a boring young fart, (but you knew that already, right?) but I'm still amazed how many people can copy a mildly amusing idea and still think they're being original and amusing.

So you can do source transformation. Good for you. Don't people have either better or at least more amusing things to write? I guess not.

It's getting even more tedious than quoting the Four Yorkshiremen.

  • Acme::NOOP - does nothing.

    The first time you run a program under use Acme::NOOP, the module does exactly nothing at all your source file. The code continues to work exactly as it did before, but now it is indistinguishable from the original. Upon subsequent invocations...

    • Thanks. I did have to check CPAN to see whether or not this had been uploaded...
      • Let's make it a Perl golf puzzle instead. I am usually horrible at it, but in this case I might be able to either (a) win and/or (b) tie for the lead (sounds of deck being stacked :-)
  • I'll agree that the Bleach derivatives are unoriginal, but as long as they all live in the Acme:: namespace, I'm happy to let 'em get put up there.

    Now, Acme::Time::Asparagus [cpan.org], THAT'S a module. ("Will round to the nearest vegetable")
