Should I give up Perl?by space_monk (Chaplain)

Dear Fellow Monks,
Before I start this, this is not intended to be a flamewar or for me to be immodest.
Recently I did a technical test in order to apply for a job. The technical test is run by an organisation which produces such tests, and so conducts a large number of tests. I scored better than 95% of all candidates who took the test (ever, not just for this role).
My problem is that this is for a *cough*PHP*cough* role.
I am aware that whilst I consider myself to be reasonably adept at Perl, I am not at that level. Should I permanently forsake Perl for where my abilities seem to lie?
If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
