For small scripts (say < 100 lines) OOP generally doesn't matter much, but for anything much over that it can provide some really useful leverage. Even poor man's OOP like:

use strict; use warnings; my $obj = bless {hi => "Hello world"}; $obj->greet (); sub greet { my $self = shift; print "$self->{hi}\n"; }

can end up saving a lot of time and confusion by avoiding passing lists of unnamed parameters into subs or accidentally doing weird stuff with global variables.

Perl is environmentally friendly - it saves trees
