You have my sympathy for your bad feelings, but maybe all is not lost. I learned Perl before I learned C# and .Net, and maybe right now it is hard to believe but C# can be almost as much fun as Perl.

I recommend that you explore the Regex support in .Net (System.Text.RegularExpressions). You should know that it is a publicly stated goal for the .Net framework to be compatible with Perl 5 - and on top of that it adds features like named captures.

One of the things I miss most about Perl is the one-liners, but then I think I can leave this as idiomatic of Perl and be content.

I don't think your Perls of wisdom will be devoured, remind yourself that you will always know that there's another way to do things, and whenever you want you can

perl -e "while(<>){s/abc/def/ig; print}"

...while all those around you are doing

using System; using System.IO; using System.Text.RegularExpressions; namespace YourCompanyName { class myClass { public static void Main() { StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(); ...and on and on and on... } } }
