I too am a C programmer and learning Perl hasn't been much difficult. I mean I still need to learn the intricacies of Perl but I know the basics. As stated by choroba
, if you know C and the others, you already know Perl quite a bit. Its kinda intuitive if you have a good grasp of C. I may be flaunting but you should check my post
. It is not recommended do something like that in Perl because Perl is more feature rich but it tells you that you can do stuff in Perl (given that it is a "scripting" language) that you can do in C.
