Acme::Pony - An encoding scheme for Silly People


  use Acme::Pony;

  print "Hello world";


The first time you run a program under use Acme::Pony, the module removes all that nasty text stuff from your source file, turning it into a lovely ASCII-art rendition of a pony. In the spirit of other london.pm modules, the ASCII-art will consist entirely of the characters matching /[buffy]+/i, thus fulfilling Greg, Leon and Dave's fantasy of seeing Buffy riding a Pony.


Can't pony '%s'

Acme::Pony couldn't access the source file for modification.

Can't unpony '%s'

Acme::Pony couldn't access the source file for execution.

This is based on Leon Brocard's 'Buffy' module and inspired by Damian Conway's brief talk on his Bleach module.

Leon contributed the code for scaling a vector Pony and filling it, replacing the bitmap Pony from the previous versions.
