"Why did you program in perl? why not c?"

What do you mean "did", I program it everyday!

Seriously though, before I started programming in Perl, I tried BASIC. It was really difficult for me and I didn't understand what a variable declaration was. Then I came to Perl. It was much easier and better explained. The books and documentation were really helpful for me. Perl is just really well explained and easier than any other language I know of.
