in reply to Perl Vs Ruby

I don't think they compare, off-the-shelf Perl without access to Moose blows. Moose makes complex tasks bearable and offers some nifty functionality that even surpasses off-the-shelf Ruby. I tend to lean perl, even though I dislike the bad-practice by default. Here is a good template to make perl suck less than Ruby.
use Moose; use autodie; use features ':5.10'; use mro 'c3'; ## Module starts here. no Moose; __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;
