During my internship in Bilkent Cyberpark, I was encouraged to use Perl as a primary language in a project and I was not familiar with it before. So I decided to learn it as quickly as possible and I was shocked how hard it is to learn a different language from scratch in one week. I was surprised how different the syntax of Perl from Java or C++ (these are the languages that we were thought). But yet I was determined to work with it and I installed some IDE’s but IDE’s were harder to use than I thought.
Active Perl seems to be the best one though but still I expected more from the language. As a determined person in Bioinformatics I believe there should be another language using Java’s syntax and Perl’s libraries.
