PBP probably has some tips, but other than that, I can't think of anything off the top of my head, neither a program nor a list. To start one...
  • ".*" is greedy, which will probably do something you don't expect in the future, so think about how you're using it.
  • be careful with "^" and "$" when not doing line-oriented string processing. But don't sweat it -- most of the time you are, so they do the right thing.
  • be explicit when you might have to touch Unicode, e.g. "\d" matches all kinds of junk that the rest of Perl doesn't think is a digit. IMHO, all regexes should have the new "/aa" modifier on them, unless you know the reason they shouldn't.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
