    perl -v
    Other than that the only one I use is search and replace.
    perl -pi -e 's/somestring/otherstring/g' *.htm

    cut, grep, xargs and find ususally do instead

    Why not just use localtime?
    perl -le'print localtime =~ /Fri/ ? "w" : "b", "oohoo"'
    Or:
    perl -le'print 5 == (localtime)[6] ? "w" : "b", "oohoo"'
