Looking at an earlier post on what it takes to learn Perl I began to wonder about some of us old timers who came to Perl after using other languages. What did we have to unlearn to learn Perl?

It many not be anything big. For me it was getting used to variable names with special characters in front, and using those variables inside of quotation marks.

How about some other old timers? What did you have to unlearn?
