in reply to Programmer Endorphins: When does the learning process end?

I don't know what other programming experience you have, but I've found one of the better ways of learning a programming language (other than actual use, reading books, and looking at other code, of course) is comparing it to others to hilight it's unique qualities. Pick up a general programming languages book (I used Concepts of Programming Languages, by Sebesta in my formal education) and if you have the inclination, poke around with some other languages and figure out how they work.

I garuntee that you'll come back with a new understanding of Perl (I think this works better with Perl than most other languages, because it allows so much more freedom than most procedural programming languages).

Enjoy
