CanSpice writes "The company I work for has just come up with voluntary lunchtime seminars to be put on by fellow employees. I figured that an hour on Perl and its informal slogan "There's more than one way to do it" would be a fine topic. So, I throw a challenge out to all the Perl programmers out there: how would you write a Perl program that would add one plus one?

I've seen this before, but have no idea where. I'm looking for fresh solutions as well, solutions that incorporate potential new features of Perl 6, along with the old diehards (bit mangling, regexps, blatant misuse of special variables, etc.)."

The classic 163-line Perl program to add 1 + 1 is mjd's Perl and the Lambda-Calculus.

Lunchtime seminars can be an interesting way to share ideas about Perl in the office. If you have a story, please tell us about it. :-)
