I agree with you and share your feelings.
I like Perl syntax. Coding/using in perl is enjoyable experience, whereas on other languages there are many places which are not as good as in Perl.
~10 years ago Perl ecosystem was huge - you could find almost everything on CPAN - it was clear for me that Perl solution is always the best (well, almost :) )
However - now I pretty much understand and even support a point of perl refusals.
starting from about ~10 years ago things have globally changed.
Now some personal recent experience.
Recently I tried to use JQuery/Datatables and even found several CPAN modules for it, tried to use these and failed.
Perl is no longer of that 20 years ago.
I am still missing 'use strict' in Python, and 'use strict' of NodeJS is not as complete as Perl's one. And also missing brevity of regexps,
....but also I understood that brevity of regexps is compensated by additional code which is needed for instant file reads and other missing core features.
