  • I'm too lazy...

    anyone care to figure out what the mystery project on
            http://yetanother.org/damian/projects.html
    is?

    Ostensibly Lingua::tlhIngan::yIghun

    ...but what does that mean? Knowing Damian (by
    reputation only), perhaps this is some spiffy
    module which tames the power of cthulu to reach
    into the future and modify your project's final
    design goals to match the goals satisfied by your
    present perl code.

    or maybe it's something more usefull.

  • klingon language ... only i don't speak enough to grok the deeper meaning.

    -pate

  • My Klingon is suspect and rusty, but:

    Lingua::tlhIngan::yIghun
    means roughly:

    Lingua::Klingon::[your program]
    YI is a prefix indicating possesion in this case
    GHUN means a computer program
  • Close, but no nujcha. yI- is actually an imperative prefix, in this case applied to the verb ghun ("to program"). So the module name translates approximately:
    Lingua::Klingon::Hey you! Program!
