This is a problem with your co-workers and the environment.
Your developers are well known (in Scotland at least) as jobs-worth, i.e. 'that's more than my jobs worth'. Aka unprofessional, selfish gits.
First step - take a break. The people here aren't your enemy. Neither are your co-workers. Neither is perl. Kick a ball around to blow off some team, go for a run - SOMETHING!!!
Second step - gather some examples and evidence of bad code. Gather some examples of good coding standards from successful perl using companies. Go to your management and make your case:
You can't change your fellow coders if they don't want to change. You can change management if you make a reasoned case showing clear, tangible £££ savings. They may even thank you.
Your co-workers won't but maybe they will find new jobs.
Good luck, I've been in the same boat and it really sucks.
