"And thanks for the alias tip. I will have to park that one away for the time being because as useful as Perl one-liners are, I don't think I'm quite ready to use them that frequently."

I have aliases set up such that they're always available, regardless of frequency of usage. In ~/.bashrc, I have:

... if [ -f "${HOME}/.bash_aliases" ]; then . "${HOME}/.bash_aliases" fi ...

And ~/.bash_aliases has lines like this:

... alias vi='vim' alias view='vim -R' ... alias perle='perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -Mautodie=:all -MCarp::Always -E +' alias perlb='perl -MO=Deparse,-p -e' ... alias apache_up='/usr/sbin/apachectl start' alias apache_down='/usr/sbin/apachectl stop' ...

You may need to adjust to suit whatever shell you're using; however, the basic principle should be applicable to any UNIX-like system. I use this with Linux for $work; with Cygwin for personal, home use; and, up until a year or so ago, with macOS (formerly Mac OS X).
