Seems a bit lost in all this. A heavy perl user that praises perl 
including it's disadvantages... perl is readable?

Yeah. For C fossil coders maybe. 8)

Let's challenge the perl folks. They claim that perl is more readable 
than ruby?

Let's make a rubyquiz-perlquiz challenge.

We need to solve something, the perl guys do it.

Then we compare our solutions. (Only "in-built" stuff is allowed, i.e. 
no cpan modules rubygems etc... things would have to be used from 
scratch, so that no language gains an inherent advantage over the other)
