The whole one-liner code pheonomenon is a big thing in the Perl community
because of Perl's TMTOWTDI characteristic. I think most good Perl
programmers, however, appreciate the value of readability. I know Paul is a
great Perl programmer and when he's not writing out-of-this-world
one-liners, he's usually writing very easy-to-read code.

With Perl. as with any language, you have to weigh the pros and cons of
using shortcuts vs making your code confusing and unmaintainable.

Now back to the show.
