List them please.

Update. We've established in the chatterbox that one could consider the laws of robotics as perlish, so that must be one connection. The blatant and obvious reason must be hubris.

Update 2010-08-08: ah, nice clear explanations, thanks.

    I would consider the robotic laws, and Asimov's extensive biography exploring those laws, to be far more Python-like than Perl-like. Would Asimov have used Perl as an inspiration for the laws, there would be 4327 of them (251 of them failing if 'strict' is enabled), half of them working differently on weekends, on full moons, or in countries having red in its flag. Oh, and in each new book, there'll be new laws. And in the new series Asimov has been working on for a decade (with an army of co-authors), 3287 laws have either been changed or removed, and 28439 new ones will be added.
