Shoot yourself on the foot
You wouldn't dream of handrolling your own routine to shoot yourself in the foot due to the expeted abuse from your fellow monks for reinventing the wheel, so . . .
You search CPAN and eventually find SUICIDE:LITE which contains the sub footshoot. You download, install, read the docs and find out it only works through OO, so go lookup what -> does again, and after 6 hours you have a 37 character implementation. That is immediately trumped by somebody elses 35 character implementation which leaves out one set of supurfluous perens.
