I want to thank you for your input. It has been very enlightening.
I enjoyed the comments of those who learned oo-programming while using Perl.
My reason for gaining an understanding of oop is one of many steps in becoming a better ‘programmer’, my goal is to write code I can be proud of when it works and when viewed by programmers with more experience than myself. (to quote a former manager, "chicks dig sexy code") I’m an old dude (42) who was a musician for 20 years who had no desire for a college degree, and now doesn’t have the time.

(Married > 3 Kids > Self-taught web designer hanging with Perl and Java Programmers > Learns Perl (entry)> Takes a detour for a 2 year PHP contract > Now wants to be able to get farther away from the “Just another designer who does a little scripting, but really doesn’t know what he’s doing” group – I hate that ;-).

I’d love to take a few years and do anything it takes to get a CS degree, but that just not going to happen. My goal is to make money doing what I like, building stuff with my computer. I’m fascinated with programming; at Merlin’s reference to SmallTalk I went and checked it out. My heart says, “cool”, but my brain says, “Yea, but you don’t have the time to get to the “super-geek” level.” (perhaps as a hobby)

So after reading your posts and much meditation, I think Perl is perfect for me, I can use it for learning more advanced programming, it’s time well spent, since I can use the knowledge right away in my work.
Thanks, now I can quit thinking and get to work!
