Because Perl is Too Straightforward…

...someone created Perligata.

Here's an example:

#! /usr/local/bin/perl -w
 
use Lingua::Romana::Perligata;
 
maximum inquementum tum biguttam egresso scribe.
meo maximo vestibulo perlegamentum da.
da duo tum maximum conscribementa meis listis.
 
dum listis decapitamentum damentum nexto
    fac sic
        nextum tum novumversum scribe egresso.
        lista sic hoc recidementum nextum cis vannementa da listis.
    cis.

is equivalent to:

#! /usr/local/bin/perl -w
 
print STDOUT 'maximum:';                  
my $maxim = <STDIN>;                     
my (@list) = (2..$maxim);
 
while ($next = shift @list)             
    {
        print STDOUT $next, "\n";
        @list = grep {$_ % $next} @list; 
    }
