OpenHuitre; and perl in books

[ #11997 ]
So I'm working on compiling (?:blead|maint)perl on Open UNIX 8, a.k.a. UnixWare 7.1.2, a.k.a. OpenHuître among some French hackers. This is quite important since all Linux users will be forced to move to SCO in the near future ;-) Anyway, that platform sucks. It's distributed with perl 5.004 by default. And no decent shell. And ithreads compilation doesn't work.

Meanwhile, I'm still reading the Cryptonomicon, and what did I found in the second volume ? a perl program. An obfuscated one. The typographs got it wrong, though : end-of-lines are misplaced, there are spurious whitespace (e.g. "= ~") and double quotes are replaced by double single quotes. Did the english edition got it right ?
