Perlhaps the most interesting (but dumbs) thinks I did in Perl were:
* my dead-now homepage all in POD's (yes, I love POD's) and my own fashioned translator to HTML, the Junior::Pod::HTML.
* a yahoogroups publid-message-base fetcher, and converter to .MSG files
Both of those are coded in a very special way of the laziness and terrible code, that only me can do... 8-)
My second big and "util" use for Perl is for machines-stress-tests and benchmarks. I love it.
How to make your Linux box be taken by a bunch of zebus:
# perl -e 'fork while 1'
# perl -e 'fork&&sleep(1) while 1'
