bart,
Or simply List::Util 'min';

There was a signature going around a while back along the lines of "90% of all perl programs are already written". On top of that, Perl let's you code in your paradigm of choice (imperative, OO, functional). Taking your min() example a few steps further, you end up with reduce. I have found it incredibly difficult to spend much time learning other languages now that I have found perl.
