90% of every Perl application you, personally, will ever really want to write is either already on CPAN or will be in the next year.
Yeah, and 95% of every C application I will ever write is already in the standard libraries.

The availability of handy libraries doing all kinds of work for you isn't something that's unique to Perl. It predates the existance of Perl. What sets CPAN apart is its role as a central repository.
