The official answer: "It depends."
I teach dog training on a regular basis along side SWMBO (my wife) and one of the "lectures" I give a class of students goes something like this:
That bit is not to be confused with the old saw about teaching a pig to sing (wastes your time and annoys the pig).
Take your time with learning Perl and enjoy the process. As time progresses you'll find yourself getting more and more proficient at it. The danger being is there is a trap where by you approach every problem the same way. Be prepared to occasionally step out of your comfort zone. That's where real learning starts.
Seems to me there are a lot of Monks out there concerned about the learning process...
