DESCRIPTION ^

So you say you're a rabid Perl programmer? You've got a Camel tattooed on your arm. You took your wife to TPC for your second honeymoon. But you're worried about your children, they might not be such devoted Perl addicts. How do you guarantee the continuation of the line? Until now, there was no solution (what, do you think they teach Perl in school?!)

Through the magic of Gene Splicing, now you can encode your very genes with the essense of Perl! Simply take your best one-liner, encode it with this nifty DNA module and head on down to your local sperm bank and have them inject that sucker in.

As the encoding of programs on bacterial DNA will soon revolutionize the data storage industry, I'm downloading the necessary forms from the US patent office as I write. Imagine, all of CPAN on an airborne bacteria. You can breathe Perl code!

When you use the DNA module on your code, the first time through it will convert your code into a series of DNA sequences. Of course, most of the DNA is simply junk. We're not sure why... someone spilled coffee on the documentation.

There's also a slight chance on each use that a mutation will occur... or maybe its a bug in perl, we're not sure. Of course, this means your code may suddenly fall over dead... but you made a few million copies, right?

POD will, of course, be preserved. God made the mistake of not writing docs, and look at all the trouble we've had to go through to figure out his code!

NOTES ^

The tests are encoded in DNA! But it sometimes introduces bugs... oh dear.

As Steve Lane pointed out, it would be better to group them into groups of three rather than four, as this makes a codon. However, that means I can only get 6 bits on one group, and God didn't have to work with high ASCII.

BUGS ^

There were only a few flipper babies.
