While I am a Java programmer, I have actually used Perl more and  
learned it before Java. Most people use Perl merely as a scripting  
language, but it is so much more than that.

IMHO, Java has a better implementation of regex. It was based upon  
Perl. And it adds to it. But while better, Java is clearly not simpler  
or more straight forward.

Java is a bit better suited to unicode than Perl. In this case Perl is  
clearly not simpler and is a lot less straight forward.
