I can poke my way around in C; enough to patch my copy of bash to use Haiku error messages, anyhow. ;-) I cut my teeth on C, Pascal, and later Java -- but I loved Perl from the moment I discovered how similar it is to a spoken language.

Oh, and three words: "Automatic Garbage Collection". I always hated trying to remember to free my malloc(). Not that I wouldn't love to know more about C, as somehow writing something like an OS kernel in Perl seems like a poor idea...
