Perl, shell, etc programs like that as one-liners ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
With compound statements of various sorts, that is fair; in the case of perl scripts, they are called one line. When you simply
On reconsideration... I suppose it is still meaningful so long as the line is reasonably short. You win.
We immediately observe several things about the above sample program.
First, all lines in the program start with a line number. These serve to identify the lines in the program, each one of which is called a statement;
Clearly, in BASIC terminology, line and statement are synonymous. Originally, the semicolon statement terminator did not even exist.
Later adaptations of BASIC allow you to put multiple statements in a single physical line, but the numbers are line numbers and not statement numbers. In BASIC terminology this would be a multi-line program.
Furthermore, if the above technical reasoning were not true, it would still be pedantic and borderline-incorrect to refer to this as a one liner, just would refer to a multi-statement C program or Perl program as such.
Anyways... they aren't just there to keep people fighting and distracted, but also to exploit basic human nature. Sectarianism is always a powerful tool - you can't get a leg up by telling people to vote for the other guy, or to be unified.
I'm sure you could damage the machines somehow through this approach, but then you'd have to be standing inside of a malfunctioning backscatter machine afterwards. I'd be afraid of the possibility of a resonance cascade.

We eliminated several hypotheses that oppose ours, now we will see how far vulgarizations will go to claim that we proved our own hypothesis!
A fire is evidence that Sealand isn't sovreign? Or the fact that someone counterfeited their passports?
The fact of the matter is that two established countries (The UK and Germany) have both recognized Sealand's sovereignty. You might as well use the DCR as an example, look at all the (completely unrelated) problems they have!
Republocrats favor bigger government, more federal concentration of power, a bigger military industrial complex, and the strengthening and extension of property rights.
