a) exploit R with perl
b) develope graphics with perl (check openGL + perl combo)
c) do parallel processing
d) develop web apps (using catalyst framework,modperl combo)
e) do anyting u can imagine.
Use "C" in-between for efficiency. Over a period of time, we will have much more faster interpreter in perl and also an unparalleled amount of free libraries added to CPAN.
Ignore others comments on perl as write only language. Just write clean perl code following some good rules.
That's it. I already used perl for heavy graphics, parallel processing, microarray analysis etc. so my experience is first hand.
Java is good too but I don't like weight. Choose Moose for OOP in perl.
