The usual smorgasbord of new and improbably useful modules beamed straight into your mind from the secret island hideaway of Perl’s own Dr Evil.

In this episode: the missing link, watching trees grow, 10 handy 5.10 tricks, code that writes code that writes code that writes code, debugging debuggers, the awesome power of the null statement, and the long-awaited successor to Parse::RecDescent.
