brian d foy said it in an amusing way in a recent blog of his:
I program Perl because I am an information junkie and the fastest way to distill it is a couple of CPAN modules. If I liked programming, I'd probably use Python or Java, because I'd get to spend a lot more time programming and less time getting results and doing something else.
