Not Matt's Scripts
I think it would be easy enough to post them here one by one and have us cobble up replacements.... it would give those chatter box vultures something to do besides philosophize about evolution and the origin of monogamy. :)
It might be very instructive to show before and after versions of the scripts.
Finally, CPAN has a scripts archive, though it isn't widely used. I would recommend writing modules which can be scripted via it's API instead of writing scripts proper.
