in reply to The Marcel Perl Questionnaire

Hey, this is fun! Here's my take on things:
Favorite Perl Instruction map I have to agree here. Brings back memories of using Scheme in college.
Least Favorite Instruction format I just never have reason to use it
Favorite Looping Mechanism postfix for A bare block with redo is a close runner up
Least Favorite Looping Mechanism do {...} while (...) It's bass ackwards
Favorite Module Data::Dumper Inspect those hairy data structures
Least Favorite Module Anything that starts with XML:: I suppose I'll have to give in someday soon, though.
Favorite Special Variable $_ It's where all the magic happens!
Least Favorite Special Variable $] Fun for obfuscating, but "Its use is highly discouraged"
Favorite variable type hash Like having a struct in C, but you can add elements on the fly!
Favorite Command Line Switch -w Second runner up: "-MCPAN -e shell"
Least Favorite Command Line Switch -U It's Unsafe!
Favorite Pragma strict Of course! 8^)
Favorite Regexp Modifier i I'm sooo insensitive. ;^)
Favorite Regexp Metachar \Q Quote me, baby!
Favorite Descriptive Variable Name $selfFresh-baked objects... yum!
Favorite HERE Doc delimitor EOT"End Of Text"
Favorite Filehandle STDERR always there when you need a friend....
