in reply to its simpler

Believe me friends, if you know C and write your Perl as the same, you'll find the real power therein.
(Almost) every time I see some Perl code written in the style of C, that code
  • uses non-idiomatic looping structures, and
  • copies too much data around, and
  • doesn't take advantage of language features (like regexps) which are written in C.

On the other hand, having some knowledge of the way perl's internals are written in C can give you some insights into optimisation and behaviour.

Simply asserting that one will "find the real power therein" when they "know C and write your Perl as the same" is retarded thinking.

P.S. -- is Java clumbsy? Rhetorically.
P.S. Were you drunk when you posted this drivel ?
