I started to use Perl around the mid-nineties, with no prior programming
experience except as a (teenage - early 20s) hobbyist using Turbo Pascal
for DOS and a little bit of C++ for Windows and OS/2[*] and while I
gladly restricted myself to the more shallow areas, I found using the
language to accomplish what I wanted to accomplish (which was not
necessarily always a sensible or even just remotely viable way to
accomplish what I should have accomplished) no great obstacle.
[*] I also implemented a few intolerably slow OO-systems using some Lisp
implementation which worked on DOS.
