First, the procedural parts of object-oriented languages like Perl will be a cinch, and second, object-orientation will come much more easily. Also, learning rudimentary languages like PHP and VBS is a cinch after all that.
As for learning Perl, it’s a bitch. There’s probably ten times as much to learn for Perl than there is for Java—and not quite that much more than for C++. Perl is not for the faint of heart. Of course, the great thing about Perl is that you can just learn what is familiar to you and use that. You don’t have to learn everything about Perl to use it. "
