Wicked Cool Perl Programs
So what makes a "wicked cool" Perl script? First, the script must be useful. It must solve a real-world problem. Many of the scripts in this book have been used out in the field in some form or other.
Cool scripts are ones that solve a difficult problem. Actually, the more difficult, the better. And if the solution turns out to be simple and elegant, well, that makes it all the cooler.
