in reply to Perl influences?

I'm quite sure that Perl has lot's of influences. Fortran, LISP and Cobol (urg) have influenced any modern language more or less. Nobody can deny, that even an exotic language as Simula had a strong influence on Perl 5. And I think that neither Merlyn,Larry nor anyone else involved did any coding in Simula.
Even traces of Algol68 can be found in Perl (well err somewhere ... 8-})
