in thread I want you to convince me to learn Perl

If you already know C, Bash and AWK, you almost know Perl.

I emphatically disagree.

Someone with that knowledge might be able to start writing code in Perl without too much difficulty, but what makes Perl a great language is how it does many things incredibly different to great advantage. It challenges assumptions one has taken as fact after coding in C and C-like languages.
