And lo, on the last day, there arose four horsemen. And their names were Uri and Brand and Ronald and Damian. And they rode forth across the Perl Conference, bringing chaos and madness. And in their hands were nine holes of Perl Golf, each more perilous than the last. Against them stood the ten teams of Perldom, armed with the sword of /usr/bin/perl and the shield of -w. Together did they strive to overcome the Nine Questions, each in the least time with the fewest keystrokes, and to contend for the glory of the Bonus Style Points. For all the tribes of the Camel did gather in the Auditorium of Monterey to witness the battle between entropy and line-noise. And they did cry out in many voices, for the battle was furious and the one-liners terrible in their brevity. And the archangel Salzenberg and the ur-demon Nandor did watch over them all, offering blessings or calumny, each according to his kind.
