Do you have a shortcut or two you use all the time when you're writing Perl code? I don't mean how you condense your code from 12 lines to 3 characters, but things like the Vim or Emacs incantations you can't live without, or Firefox shortcuts so you can just type "cpan Module::Name" in the URL bar to jump to search.cpan.org results. Or, perhaps something written in Perl that's a little off-the-wall but makes your life easier or more fun, like your favorite Perl GUI widget, or a Perl-controlled alarm clock?
If you have an idea like this, or if you just want to debate the rules of the CPAN drinking game, drop us a note at email@example.com (this will send your message to the list and subscribe you). The best ideas will get added to a book called Perl Hacks.
