I know this is kindof a stupid question, but Perl was introduced to me 
as being a good alternative to using complex BASH Shell scripts with 
embedded Awk and Sed scripts.

Is Perl like a shell script?

from http://perldoc.perl.org/perlintro.html#What-is-Perl? it seems that 
perl is somewhat like shell or php in some ways.
