You are a most remarkable programmer, chipmunk. I just spent four and a half hours working on this one instead of my essay and still didn't get anywhere. Here's my best:

foreach(1..99){$b="\n$_ bottle@{[$_!=1&&s=>]} of beer";push@a,",\nTake + one down, pass it round,$d@{$d=$b.' on the wall'}\n",$d.$b};print re +verse@a;

but the output isn't as nice as yours.

I had this great idea using quines and self-modifying code, but I was beaten by s///. The idea was to find every number in the program and decrement it by one with s/\d{2}/$1--/g but $1 is read only so I couldn't (my lesson for today). Oh well. The following code actually works.
Update: I don't know if it's just my browser but the second line isn't displaying correctly. It should be $b=99;$c=$b-1;. But it doesn't break to badly if $c gets mangled.

seek DATA, 38,0; + $_=join("",<DATA>); + $b=99;$c=$b-1; + $b/$b; + print "\n\n $b on the wall, $b. Take one down, pass it around, $c on +the wall." ; + s/$b/$b-1/e; + s/ (\$.)/$1 bottles of beer/g; + eval;__DATA__ +

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

    [Corion]: james28909: You can get a list of all modules on your Windows Perl via the autobundle command in the cpan shell. But that likely lists many more modules than you actually want. I recommend a clear separation and installing modules on ...
    [Corion]: ... both Perls separately. I use cpanfiles or Makefile.PL for that - listing all modules for an application there allows me to install them via cpanm . or cpan . automatically without any further interaction
