You certainly don't need to know C++ to be good at Perl.

Having a true object-oriented language in your background might help, but C++ is nowhere near object-oriented enough to make any significant difference in that regard (especially if you learned C first and then moved to C++, which will lead you to write mostly procedural C++ code); and a functional language (e.g., Lisp) would help a lot more, IMO; and in any case if your goal is to be good at Perl no other language will help you more than Perl itself.

I could not agree more.
