Some Perl operators have colorful nicknames, like the spaceship or diamond operators.

During their never ending search for obscurity and shortness, obfuscators and golfers have discovered new Perl "operators", commonly known as the Perl "secret operators".

This light-hearted talk will present some of them, with example of use. Come and learn everything you never wanted to know about the inchworm-on-a-stick, the spacestation, the baby cart and many others!

(This updated version of the talk will also feature "Perl secret values", like the amphisbaena and the space fleet...)
