I would like to agree. Better but each of those has a pretty high barrier to self-edification and fewer places it will be used in a regular career. Plus, some of what you're talking about in "different concepts" can be handled with different code style in Perl. That's why the Higher Order Perl is so nice, it covers some of that.

I tried to teach myself some Lisp about 3 years ago when I was feeling the same, I'm not progressing feeling, and the resources, tutorials, etc are slim/difficult for a semi-hacker. If I had time now and wasn't resume padding I'd play with something like one of the nascent Parrot driven languages like Amber; or maybe Erlang.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
