Well, something that surprises me is why hasn't this post been upvoted at least once (after 25 minutes) ?

I'm pretty sure it can be interesting to many more people (I would be if I loved perl, but I don't practice it).

Perl is easy to learn. It also borrowed from a lot of languages, and a lot of languages borrowed from it, which makes it easier.

If you already know C, bash, Ruby, Python or PHP, you will find a lot of carryover to Perl.
