I am aware of this file somewhat, its just the standard usecase is "See the
file, copy its guts, dont understand what they do, suffer the fact the code
you copied will get old and wont be updated when the perl.proto is"

The idea is basically, "get the behaviour ascribed in PKGBUILD-perl.proto,
except, without needing to manually review that file, and have most the
legwork done by a little bit of syntax that loads that behaviour"


perl -e  "print substr( \"edrgmaM  SPA NOcomil.ic\\@tfrken\", \$_ * 3, 3 )
for ( 9,8,0,7,1,6,5,4,3,2 );"
