[DFW.pm] Is Perl Like Shell Script?

Just for fun I turned my 22*** line IRC greeter bot into a 52 line IRC
spellchecker bot (screenshot below). 

This bot is currently logged into irc.perl.org taking requests in the
#bot-test channel.

Like greeter bot, spellchecker bot is in the DFW Perl Mongers irc bot
repo on github.
