A Perl script, which lists the supplied tokens and their lengths in descending order.


biggest a, bb, ccc, dddd, eeeee, ffffff, ggggggg, ...

Output will look like the following:

7 ggggggg
6 ffffff
5 eeeee
4 dddd
3 ccc
2 bb
1 a


A Perl script, which creates comment header templates, sometimes including some prototype code, for various coding types including .c, .cpp, .exp (expect), .java, .php, .pl, .pm, .py, .sh, and .tcl.

Note: If the named file already exists, the header template will be prepended to the existing file content.

If the file doesn't exist, then it's created, with the header template content at the beginning

In both cases, the resulting file is brought up in $EDITOR automatically.


create example.pl

Creates a Perl-style comment header for the "example.pl" file, and opens it in $EDITOR.


Writes an HTML page to stdout that describes the local PHP installation in great detail.


A Perl script, which writes a scale or comment line to stdout. It's useful for constructing aligned text or comment blocks in your code on the fly. It recognizes various programming language commenting styles, when you supply the relevant file extension on the command line (see Example below for the supported extensions). If no extension is given, a simple 80-char scale line, like the following, is output:

1---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6--- ...


scale [.c|.java|.php|.pl|.sh]
