Perl is multi-paradigm (functional, OO, procedural), high level, extremely fast for a dynamic language, has the lowest defect density and the best Unicode support of all high level languages, ample and helpful community and subcommunities, has the CPAN, and most importantly: Perl lets one code the way one thinks; adopting any approach with the rigor or sloppiness a task merits. This level of comfort and ease might explain why Perl is sometimes reported to have the happiest users. I count myself among them.
