in thread Learning ***** as a second language

so learning php, phyton or ruby is not a bad idea, but i don't think it will give you mutch benefit over Perl.

You're right on this, but learning another scripting-language helps to get another perspective. I started using anonym functions after I learned about lambdas in python and I learned about Mixins after I saw them in ruby - so it can be a benefit to learn other languages, even if their possibilities aren't much different to those of perl.
