Where was Sharon Hopkins's Perl Poetry Published?

I'm looking for references to Sharon Hopkins's Perl poetry in The Economist and The Guardian for my update of the Camel Book. The Economist website is down right now, and my search in The Guardian turned up nothing.

Does anyone have these references? She didn't list them in "Camel and Needles".




I imagine that these were published pre-1999, so this would be relevant:


So you need to search using

Re previous comment, from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perl#History

Larry Wall began work on Perl in 1987, while working as a programmer at Unisys,[6] and released version 1.0 to the comp.sources.misc newsgroup on December 18, 1987.[10] The language expanded rapidly over the next few years.

So the article's date is clearly wrong, please forget about that.
