Hello Crosis and welcome to the monastery and (back) to the wonderful world of Perl!
Perl shines as always.. while I'm not the best monk here around to do comparison with other language for sue I can say that one of Perl strenght will be immutable and will persist over decades: it's a glue language.
The job, using Perl, is quickly done. This means that you have a working thing very soon and you can grow it up as you want.
Perl still rules in system administration: it is present in virtually all Linux systems and is easy to have on win32 systems: strawberry perl is almost equal to deal with as perl on Linux.
Dont forget a lovely community! see Why does it seem as though Perl has the only community of friendly, non patronizing or demeaning, programmers? What is with every one else?
As new things in CPAN you can look at Plack PSGI (the new web Perl standard) and new webframework Mojolicious Dancer2
I suggest you to see also MCE the many core engine for perl
There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
