A great skill to have as a Perl programmer is CPAN
search-fu, the ability to find the right (or sometimes
"right enough") module to fit the problem at hand. This is
a skill that is not gained overnight. I have no idea how
longs it takes one to become a master librarian of CPAN, but
i am sure that it takes practice, application, trial and
error, making the wrong choices, and most importantly,
asking advice to become one.
