  • Thanks for posting this. I wasn't aware of it before and I'm a bit annoyed I didn't think of this when creating Acme::EyeDrops. :) You see, at the time, I did try to think of various little ways to liven up a CPAN distro, but, for A::E, only came up with:

    • Tarball user/group names of arthur/dent
    • When you run "perl Makefile.PL", a little Ascii Art camel is displayed
    • When you run "make test", the test names form a haiku, for light relief while you wait
  • You could have weird file names like

    'touch '$\2f'|'

    or <> (if it's invisible to you, left chevron, right chevron aka diamond).

    I apparently uh... "planned ahead" by ending most of my modules in something pithy, usually copied from somewhere that made me laugh.
