we are going to install some perl modules, for a very line-oriented christmas.
% perl -MCPAN -e 'install IO:Tty'
% perl -MCPAN -e 'install Acme'
% perl -MCPAN -e 'install POE'
preferably as root.

want to have `Acme::POE::Tree', and execute
% perl -MAcme::POE::Tree -e 'Acme::POE::Tree->new()->run()'
meaning: `http://search.cpan.org/~rgiersig/IO-Tty-1.07/Tty.pm';
finally: `http://search.cpan.org/~rcaputo/Acme-POE-Tree-1.01/lib/Acme/POE/Tree.pm'.

% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RG/RGIERSIG/IO-Tty-1.07.tar.gz
% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/I/IN/INGY/Acme-1.11111.tar.gz
% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/POE-1.003.tar.gz
% wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/Acme-POE-Tree-1.01.tar.gz

% perl Makefile.PL && make && make test && make install
for each mod.

% perl -MCPAN -e 'install Acme::POE::Tree'
obviously, you'll have to set cpan first ($HOME/.cpan/Metadata).

% perl -MAcme::POE::Tree -e 'Acme::POE::Tree->new()->run()'
once you have it, play with it: modifying (the method) `star_delay', or `light_delay', etc.

p.s.: `IO::Tty' determines tty's properties, by importing constants. w00t!
p.p.s.: thanks to rocco for the geeky present.
        ^             !             ?
       /\            /\            /\

      ^||^          /^^\           ||    .

p.s.s.: compression and a lot of solid-color areas, resulting a small image. note: this is a png; if it looks broken, get a browser that can view pngs =:: http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/pngapbr.html.


the good stuff within:

pci/kvm changes (mmap legacy_io support, pci quirks removing; kvm supporting vt-d driver).
ext4/ext3/ocfs2/ubifs/gfs2/nfs mods (e.g.,
ext4dev it's now ext4 (fs/Kconfig, fs/Makefile, fs/ext4/*), so no TEST_FILESYS anymore; error handling control option (i/o operations; buffer write errors don't get detected, if fsync() is not used, iow, determines whether to call printk() or to abort journalizing; however, ignoring will be set by default), (prominently fs/ext4/ext4.h); no HUGE_FILE flag auto-enabled; delayed allocation mode disabled (fs/ext4/inode.c).
default autodetection of a config option for raid configs.

some drivers had been held on place, aka staging.
