Oh yes - number one advice to any programmer who hasn't already is
"learn other languages" - but for Perl I'd probably recommend Python

know them :)

I'd still like to spend some real quality time with Lisp. Frankly I'm
scared of falling so deeply in love with it that it cripples me for
anything else though.
 I don't *know* Python - but I know enough to know I like it.
