It's quite possible to embed multi-line Perl scripts
in shell scripts. And, although the quoting issues
can get pretty complicated, there are also some cool
things that you can do by using the shell as a macro
pre-processor for Perl (e.g., put a Perl script in a
loop, varying the code from iteration to iteration).
That said, I agree that keeping Perl in a separate
file is generally both simpler and safer.
