Perl is an amazing language... but,I avoid using it like the plague (and I *like* unixy stuff!).  My impression of it has always been with the group that views it as "executable line noise"... despite my mature understanding of regular expressions..

However, I like this talk Larry Wall gave for Big Think.  This guy's sharp, pragmatic, wears horrible shirts... and makes me think I should give the language another shot.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

I just started college and my cs class is beginning with C.  I have heard that it is one of the more difficult languages to learn. Not sure how true that is, but i'll wait and see until i get out of the easy stuff, like hello world.
