Code reuse would be the biggest reason to write a class for a utility script. Maybe you want to do something similar in another script, you can use that class in it.

Also, you'd be surprised how many 20-30 line utility scripts grow into monster apps.

    I've written a 40,000 line web app in Perl which was loosely OO. Not to say it is a great example of Perl OO in action, but it can be done.

      Even a small set of perl 1-liners represent a powerful integration of near complete programs, so you can write a complete operating system in less than 40K lines of perl.

      So, what exactly were you trying to attempt/achieve in those 40,000 lines of perl code ? I am extremely curious to know :-)
