As I read the perlop manpage (a while back, as everyone should), I find that the auto-increment operator "++" has a bit of built-in magic. Basically: If you use a variable in string context since it was set (other rules apply, read the perlop manpage for more information), the increment is done as a string.
Following these rules, and of course with some creativity, I came up with a way to print my nick "eggzeck"; of course this is for fun, and I'm sharing it for fun/educational purposes. Well, I don't know how much you'll actually learn from this, so it's mostly for fun.
Here's what I came up with:
$nick = join("", map(++($holder = $_), qw(d f f y d b j)));
Pretty cool? The $nick variable will now contain the string "eggzeck".:-)
