What is a the next language to learn after Perl

Does this mean you have learned all of Perl? If so, how did you manage that? :-)

Seriously, many people say that every good programmer should learn at least one procedural, one functional, one object oriented and one declarative/logic-oriented language.

Procedural you have covered with Perl (though of course Perl is multi-paradigm), so you could next attack functional with Lisp or Haskell, or object oriented with Eiffel (very nice pure OO language) or Java (very wide spread, but IMHO not as elegant as Eiffel), or Prolog.

Then there a myriad of other languages and protocols that are often used together with Perl that might be worth learning: SQL, javascript, xhtml, CSS, HTTP, shell script, Makefiles, various template system, ...

Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.
