  japh 
 
    A  {Perl}  program  which  prints  "Just  another  Perl 
  hacker"  using  extremely  obfuscated  methods,  typically  ones 
  based  on  obscure  behaviours  of  sometimes  rarely-used  functions, 
  in  the  spirit  of  the  {Obfuscated  C  Contest}. 
 
  The  obfuscation  can  result  from  the  code  being  total 
  gibberish,  e.g.: 
 
  $_="krJhruaesrltre  c  a  cnp,ohet";$_.=$1,print$2while  s/(..)(.)//; 
 
  or  from  having  "Just  another  Perl  hacker"  embedded  in  opaque 
  code: 
 
  $_='987;s/^(\d+)/$1-1/e;$1?eval:print"Just  another  Perl  hacker,"';eval 
 
  or  from  looking  like  it  does  something  simple  and  completely 
  unrelated  to  printing  "Just  another  Perl  hacker": 
 
  $_  =  "wftedskaebjgdpjgidbsmnjgc"; 
  tr/a-z/oh,  turtleneck  Phrase  Jar!/;  print;
