I'm wondering what daily Perl usage that's even vaguely useful that I do, which could be improved upon.
Ah, of course, triple-f one-liners!
As a tool, the perl command often seems to replace a jungle of echo + egrep + cut + tr + sed + awk and whatnot.
perl -naweand ctrl+r (reverse i-search) in bash are good friends of mine, but after using the same one-liners a few times in a row, I usually end up converting them to tidy files with
Getopt::Long, comments and other insanities.
And at some stage later, I say to myself: damnit, I should've coded this more generally, I start a recode, get distracted, solve a new problem with one-liners, and the circle of life goes on.
Do I need professional help?
