The System Administration Mailing List, Vol 1, issue 6 (Mar. 12, 1990)
had a collection of perl scripts submitted by Tom Christiansen
Send submissions to: email@example.com
Send requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Back-issues of the mailing list is available for anonymous ftp from
the Systems Administration archives at terminator.cc.umich.edu. Look
in the directory ~ftp/unix/sysadmin.

I'm not aware of one just for administrators, but are you aware of
the perl archive on tut.cis.ohio-state.edu? Also, there is a
Usenet news group comp.lang.perl (the source of most of these
perlscripts) which is useful sometimes.
I'm a new convert to perl. I've written a perl version of
quot (because we only have quot on our suns) and a script to
find all symbolic links on a directory. Now I'm doing a big
job, rewriting the accounts software in perl with screens and
everything. There is a package called "shellforms" which lets
you create screens for sh/csh/ksh/perl scripts. It is available
for anonymous ftp on uunet. If you use it with perl, you'll
need a patch and example that I got from the author. I will
volunteer to send a copy of my correspondence with the author
(containing the patch & example) to anyone who requests it.

I think there is a collection of perl scripts on tut.cis.ohio-state.edu.
From: David Fetrow <email@example.com>
I don't know about that but there is a good way to search for this kind
of thing if you are on the internet. You should get acquainted with
"archie", the anonymous-FTP archive server. It's hopelessly overloaded
but very helpful.
rsh quiche.cs.mcgill.ca -l archie
will access the original...satellite servers are being installed.
From: "Randal L. Schwartz" <merlyn@iWarp.intel.com>
ftp.cis.ohio-state.edu:pub/perl is the more-or-less official
repository of useful Perl scripts, although a targeted audience of
"system administrators" is not highlighted. New scripts are accepted
in "incoming" under that directory.
comp.lang.perl is the Usenet newsgroup to watch. If you don't read
Usenet, the newsgroup is also two-way gatewayed to
firstname.lastname@example.org (with the standard
email@example.com for meta-conversations). If you have a
sysadm need, *someone* in the 35,000 subscribers has probably already
tackled it in Perl, so that's a good place to ask.

How about the perl book?
