NAME

Acme::DWIM - Perl's confusing operators made easy

SYNOPSIS

        use Acme::DWIM;
        my ($x) = +("Hullo " x 3 . "world" & "~" x 30) =~ /(.*)/;
        $x =~ tr/tnv/uow/;
        print $x;

DESCRIPTION

The first time you run a program under "use Acme::DWIM", the module replaces all the unsightly operators et al. from your source file with the new DWIM operator: "..." (pronounced "yadda yadda yadda").
The code continues to work exactly as it did before, but now it looks like this:
use Acme::DWIM;
        my ($x) ... ...("Hullo " ... 3 ... "world" ... "~" ... 30) ... /(...)/;
        $x ... tr/tnv/uow/;
        print $x;
