Speaking of Unix tools, do any of the Perlians in this list remember Tom 
Christiansen's pet project Perl Power Tools?

  http://www.perl.com/language/ppt/

The project aims to rewrite many Unix commands in Perl, from simple 
commands like 'echo', 'clear', and 'cat' to moderately complex ones like 
'cp', 'find', and 'ls' to complex ones like 'awk', 'make', and 'm4'. 
Take a look at the URL above, they seem to have implemented a good chunk 
of them.

Perhaps someone with extra free time on his hands would like to take a 
stab on a Ruby Power Tools project? ;-)
