Term::Kaka - a subclass of Term::Caca with virtually identical behavior
Extra thin wrapper for your pleasure
package Term::Kaka; use base 'Term::Caca'; 1;

Subject: libcaca <-- our framebuffer
John Beppu to Pip
Pip, Based on the name alone, I think this should be the basis of the framebuffer for ASCIIker. Even if the name weren't so apropos, the library itself looks really good to me in terms of how it's coded and the API that it provides. I think making a set of perl modules around this and making a Term::Caca distribution would be the right thing for me to do. http://sam.zoy.org/projects/libcaca/
Pip Stuart to me
My only gripe is ... well the spelling. I believe it should almost always be spelled 'kaka'. Both spellings have been understood && acceptable according to linguists for quite some time but... my highschool friends && I agreed that the K makes it harder && harsher ... && when you're discussing kaka... it should be harsh... it should sound harsh... it should smell harsh. The C is like a lame copout && should only be used by the uninformed or for temperament (which I have never employed when referring to kaka). Maybe it's like eskimos with tons of names for snow. I think of all sorts of stuff ... refuse... somewhat affectionately yet recognizing the crap nature... in order of use: kaka, dung, poop, crap, plop, slop, spit, stuf, shat, stul... shit is reserved for extreme occasion. These are all my 4-letter variable names that have been with me for a long time. This is deeply rooted in me &&... I can't imagine ever accepting the C spelling. It's weird... I could accept alternate spellings of any of the others but I must protest for kaka. I know it's rather difficult to take this complaint seriously since it... well has no technical basis ... but kaka is kaka... it's like KAKA!!! I know that's a lame argument. I'm not prepared to defend it more soundly... maybe the module could be Term::Kaka that wraps libcaca? I know that's probably weird but... what else can I say? It should be libkaka. -Pip
...as opposed to 'caca', and thus, Term::Kaka was born to make Term::Caca be, sound, and smell harsh.
