I guess it came somewhat naturally to me, having programmed in Microsoft BASIC for all those years. That said, having $A refer to one thing, @A refer to another, and $A refer to the latter, not the former (as opposed to, say, @A) took a little getting used to.
I'm personally wondering when Perl 6 is getting here. I personally put off learning Perl 5 in greater depth for awhile when I heard that Perl 6 was Coming Real Soon and was going to have Radical Changes. That was almost a decade ago. Maybe that had something to do with Perl's declining popularity?
