Perl or Python

I’ve been a fan of Python for several years, but at this moment I need to learn some Perl, and what I have learned is quite impressive. Perl is a very powerful language with thousands of modules. I went for Python because it has a clearer syntax and it’s purely object oriented, and every time I saw a Perl script I thought it was very cryptic. Now with some tutorials and perl books (thanks to safari oreilly), I’m seeing that I was quite wrong. Perl is very powerful, even more than Python, when dealing with regular expressions, files, directories, and doing small tasks. Perhaps, for larger programs Python is best recommended, because of its object oriented nature (classes and methods). Long life for Perl!!
