Hacking

Lots of thinking about Aspect-Oriented Programming. It's really cool stuff, even though I'm still having some issues wrapping my head around how some of the more general cases are used. I understand specific stuff, like abstracting out logging or errors, but the idea of a more general cross-cutting concern is still escaping my grasp.
Perl 6 is going to be incredibly cool. It's sorta like the language that I have fun and do stuff in is slowly converging on all of the neato features out of functional languages that I miss. Though I suspect it's probably a little much to ask for pattern matching sub, eh?
Off to break code I wrote two years ago. Should be an exercise in learning how much I've learned, or not.
Oh. Is there a better(read smaller) way to perform a fork bomb in Perl? A friend and I are carving trays of fork bombs in different languages in our cafeteria, and this was the best I could think of for Perl:
perl -e '`"$0 | $0"`;'
Scheme, of course, gets the Y combinator.
