UNobfuscated Perl Code Contest

The Perl Gazette has announced the winners in the First Annual Unobfuscated
Perl Code Contest. First place went to Edwin Fuller, who submitted this
unobfuscated program:

  print "Hello world!\n";

"This was definitely a challenging contest," said an ecstatic Edwin
Fuller. "I've never written a Perl program before that didn't have
hundreds of qw( $ @ % & * | ? / \ ! # ~ ) symbols. I really had to summon
all of my programming skills to produce an unobfuscated program."

...The second place winner, Mrs. Sea Pearl, submitted the following code:

  use strict;
  # Do nothing, successfully
<n3tg0d> has /usr/bin/emacs been put into /etc/shells yet?  :P
... ich bin in einem dusenjet ins jahr 53 vor chr ... ich lande im
antiken Rom ...  einige gladiatoren spielen scrabble ... ich rieche
In /users3 did Kubla Kahn
A stately pleasure dome decree,
Where /bin, the sacred river ran
Through Test Suites measureless to Man
Down to a sunless C.
Terorists crashed an airplane into the server room, have to remove /bin/laden. (rm -rf /bin/laden)
Winnuke in one line?  No problem:
perl -MIO::Socket -e 'IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr=>"")->send("bye",MSG_OOB)'

And formatted so it's a little easier to read:

        use IO::Socket;
                ->send("bye", MSG_OOB);

        -- Randal Schwartz
Charles Briscoe-Smith <>:
  After all, the gzip package is called `gzip', not `libz-bin'...

James Troup <>:
  Uh, probably because the gzip binary doesn't come from the
  non-existent libz package or the existent zlib package.
