I've programmed in Perl for over a year and I've fallen in love with it - I've some experience in Java and C++ but they don't give me the same kick (but they are useful and fun in their own ways).
Back to Perl, just the other day, I wrote a ten-liner to manipulate some 500 lines of text spread over a few files - deleting some part of the text and moving some other parts to the end of each line. With a one-line regular-expression, I was able to accomplish the task in less than 5 mins. It was just amazing how simple and powerful perl can be.
I also use perl to write CGIs and I like it just as much.
Allow me to quote this from Larry Wall's Perl Programming (3rd Edition, p. 4):
At every level, perl is about helping you get from here to there with +minimum fuss and maximum enjoyment. That's why so many Perl programme +rs go around with a silly grin on their face.
