CVS Monitor reverse engineers CVS data to do all sorts of cool stuff, looks great, has a pretty large, highly structured design, easy to read and highly commented code, and works with very large data sets of highly cross linked objects.

And it was pretty much written in 2 months in my spare time...

The unreadable-ness of perl is really because most people don't comment or write clean code.

I've had a lot of people on reading various applications of mine say "Is that perl? It looks more like ..."

For the interested, I've been accumulating a code/style guide for writing big-ass perl apps.
