As you can see by the responses, the title should be
"My top 10 command line commands"

I am purposely constrained on HDD (I don't want to end up with too much data so I clean my partitions frequently)
du -h --max-depth=1
On multiuser systems knowing now to use chown and chmod properly is fundamental.
and of course ssh with all it's variations.
Regarding the Perl command you wrote, I prefer to do things like that in sed as it is more ubiquitous. But as I said, a matter of preference.
For me some of the most useful commands are:
mount (specially -o loop)
