in reply to Perl as a first language

I guess to me....the first language is C/C++
Cause it's the "Universal Language" and is very easy to define and understand.
Perl can make you express your thoughts in a such way.
For newbies Perl is not the real language to start on but it's a great challange.
But if you want the "dumb's bestfriend" language try using COBOL or Basic.
