Twisted Info Design
This periodic table of Perl operators is insane [via Tao of Mac].
And also lovely.

Sadly, that's only for the semi-mythical Perl 6. A table for Perl 5 would be damned useful though...
Just remember now, LISP is the difficult language, while anyone can easily pick up Perl and be an expert .
These look like counters from one of those Avalon Hill board wargames.
Hmm, cook up counters for another language X, design some rules, and we can settle X-vs-Perl language wars on a hex game board.
ObLisp: Surely Lisp is the best language to apply genetic and simulation algorithms to test the playability of sets of rules...
Screw the hex game board. Play in the computer.
Good lord, perl is descending even further into heiroglyphics. It's like looking at some twisted ascii rendition of an APL character set or something!
