One liners are very valuable, never under estimate.

In my company, a guy wrote a 15 line (approx) shell script. Code was readable, tidy.

Another guy wrote the code for the same funtionality having regex and pipes, looked so messy and unreadable. (2 pipes i think).

First guy's code took about 2 hours to run on about 80-100 files of size around 500 MB each.
Second guy's script completed the run in 4 minutes 20 seconds.

First guy was an average coder who used loops, conditions and some pipes. Second guy, omg, was a plumber... (you know what i mean :D ).
