It gets 29 things done with perl to do something impossible
It's not impossible. You should look up what that word means.
It's much easier to develop one-liners on the command line because it can so rapidly scroll through history of revisions. I can get a few test runs deep into trouble fiddling around with it and get back to a working version by hitting the up arrow a few times. In many years I haven't found a more rapid, easier and fun way to explore and deploy the power of perl.
For you maybe, it sounds stupid and time consuming, and looks awful. Thanks for perpetuating the meme that perl looks like line noise

    AFAIK it was not possible on my computer to get a simple sorted list of executables installed in path by CPAN without writing something (like perldoc -uT perllocal |grep "EXE_FILES: [a-z]" |cut -c 14- |sed 's/>//' |sort). It is now possible to do that on my computer with perl and thanks to the generosity of perlmonks.org (and yours-truly ;) your computer can do this too, if you want it to! Hopefully I didn't reinvent some wheel but I could not find what I want like:
    
    cpanlist --exeonly --sortbyname --nopath --unique
    
    
    I'm still working on --showdesc and --showhelp like output, at the command line of course 💻

    It's so much faster than dealing with scripts. The brevity of Perl represents one of the most intense achievements of information compression in the known universe! Perlmonks appreciate and celebrate that sort of thing, why don't you? Funny pictures with your-text-here notwithstanding... ☺
