Perl Rewrite of Standard-Unix Commandline Tools

stefan k has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Fellow Monks,
we're looking for the project which tries to rewrite common unix tools (chmod, grep, strings (in particular), etc) in perl. A search on freshmeat yielded no results but we think we read it somewhere. Does anybody know the name (or URL) of that project?

In our case the functionality of the strings-command (which probably is maximum 3 lines *golf-challenge*?) would be enough, so that you end up with a little perl programm that works just like strings and can be used on wind**s (yeah, we're suffering)

Regards... Stefan
you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion

    I think this is what your looking for.

    Perl Power Tools at http://www.perl.com/language/ppt/

    strings is already done, btw.

    You might also want to look at <a href="sources.redhat.com/cygwin/"Cygwin, a port of most GNU commands and a shell for windows.
