A recent module, Perl::Critic, has a nice command line interface ( perlcritic) that tells you which of Conway's "Perl Best Practices" your code might be violating.

For example:

$ perlcritic `perldoc -l Time::HiRes` Package variable declared or used at line 4, column 1. See pages 73,75 + of PBP. Deprecated 'require' statement used at line 6, column 1. Use 'use' pra +gma instead Deprecated 'require' statement used at line 7, column 1. Use 'use' pra +gma instead Code before warnings are enabled at line 9, column 1. See page 431 of +PBP. String form of 'eval' at line 20, column 12. See page 161 of PBP. Useless interpolation of literal string at line 25, column 9. See page + 51 of PBP. Postfix control 'if' used at line 25, column 46. See pages 93,94 of PB +P. Postfix control 'unless' used at line 42, column 27. See pages 96,97 o +f PBP. Builtin function called with parens at line 42, column 34. See page 13 + of PBP.

If you aren't brave, don't do that with CGI. :)
