map und grep sind zwei sehr mächtige Perl-Befehle: Richtig eingesetzt ersparen sie so manche überflüssige Programmzeile und zusätzlichen Speicherbedarf. Mit Hilfe zweier unscheinbarer Klammern kann map um die Funktion von grep erweitert werden.
Data::ObjectDriver is a great ORM. It's easy to configure and easy to use, but not as powerful as DBIx::Class (which isn't that easy to learn and I actually prefer using a wrapper instead of "native" DBIx::Class, but that's another story). There is one major thing I missed with Data::ObjectDriver: JOINing foreign tables.
Perl has a very flexible variable concept. One might use different namespaces, called "packages" or use all variables global without defining them. Another way to use variables is more Cish where every single variable must be declared before it's used.
Perl has a great asynchronous library: AnyEvent. (There may be even more great asynchronous libraries, but it decided to use AnyEvent.) I recently had to lookup a lot of different hostnames and didn't want to do it sequentially (because every single DNS server might be down or wait until the reply is received).
DKIM may be called as PGP successor: PGP has been used by many people for signing their emails at a time when mostly technical related people had been using the internet. Today, few people still use PGP to sign their emails, but email servers took over this part using a technology called DKIM.
Some websites stopped working today or at least some cookie-based functions ran out-of-order. Deleting all cookies helps - but is no solution. A cookie called __atrfs set by the famous AddThis! service is responsible for this.
