Fortunately, at PerlMonks, we do strive to be open-minded, so I'm going to afford you the benefit of the doubt and assume you aren't trying to stir up a religious debate in our sacred monastery, for $verily, that would be unfortunate. :-)
That being said, I'm afraid your question is far too broad for me to imagine the universe in which the set of possible answers resides, so let me respond with a question instead, to get a better idea of what you're after:
Why are you asking this question? Is it for a school report? A project? Ammunition for (or against) bringing Perl into your workplace? Your personal m-ary tree of possible career paths? (My own is more of a circular doubly linked list with 0 < n < 2 nodes, but I digress.)
Finally, the always faithful Perl Advocacy resources might be of some insight.
Welcome to PerlMonks. We do hope your stay is enlightening.
