shell-command-on-region. With a prefix argument it replaces the region with the shell command's output. Great way to run Perl one-liners on whatever you're editing!

Also, align-regexp. Ideal for picky types who want a bunch of assignments to line up on the =. ;)

    that reminds me! I forgot cperl-mode's C-M-| for lining up stuff. I use that alot.

    Just don't miss and hit backspace in X windows...

[marto]: so I have to work Saturday, which is good and bad. Bad in the sense that I have to be hear early :( Good in that I am here only as support for another client project, so I get to spend the day working on my personal 'ToDo' list, without the kids :P
[Corion]: marto: Ooof - but yes, being there as only second level support or third level support is good and if you have enough things that you can work on, it won't be a wasted (if paid) day
