Well I think there's no huge difference if you code 8 hours of perl a day or 4 hours of perl and 4 hours of another language.
Let me tell you something: you'll get used to it. I sit in front of my screen 8-10 hours a day usually, and I spend 80-90% of that time on coding perl. Well sure you get tired sometimes, but I found out that lots of that depends on the setup you work with. I'm lucky enough to have a 18" LCD-Screen here and found some nice vim-colors/settings that make it comfortable for me.
In my free-time though I spend lots of time in nature, doing meditation stuff or reading books. I also enjoy it to play chess, even if I didn't play much the last year...
Of course I can imagine something better than sitting most time of my day in front on a screen but that's all I've learned in the last years, and I need money to live etc etc..
But to be honest I also enjoy lots of that time, even when there are days where I totally dislike it but that's something you have in every job you do over a long period.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
