How do you define pleasing?
Perl's CPAN is far more useful than pretty much any other
language/library, so I'm not sure we can show good examples, without
writing examples for most of CPAN.
For the Boost library (aka C++), how do you show that compile-time
compilation is taking place?
And if you like the Java's acronym soup, then a single 80x25 isn't going
to cut it...
I'm somewhat of a fan of the GNU Hello world example... ;)
