in thread Is it worth knowing Perl? Real-life examples please

I want to transition from using Windows to Linux, and I saw that learning perl is the best option. It's like killing two birds with one stone. I'll not only learn a server-side scripting language, but I will also learn how to program Linux. Perfect combination.

This. Perl is fantastic (as everyone knows). It's doubly fantastic on a decent O/S. Perfect combination indeed.

PHP is faster

That's intriguing. Maybe you mean "faster to learn", perhaps because there's less of it? Dunno. Do tell.
