You've read the bash tutorials or at least looked at them before the post was moved into its own thread and then you ask about perl and python. First off before you start learning anything you need to determine why you want to learn it. Are you wanting to scripts beyond sh scripting capabilities? Then Perl is great for that. Its a great glue language, cgi scripting and more efficient that php in most cases assuming code is proper, can write gui programs and some 2d games, maybe some 3d games but its not a good language for games as its not fast enough for that. Python on the other hand is a language you have to compile which works for games and great for gui applications, cgi programs.
So be sure you research the language and make sure its capable of what you want to do.
Personally I'm still a beginner at perl but it does make things easier to accomplish with cpan and all. How ever my goals are to learn enough with perl to glue programs and write cgi scripts mostly and be able to write database programs dealing with mostly mysql. Then I'm going to dive into c++ and hopefully be somewhere by the end of the year to design a small game engine. But thats a tough goal but I think I can achieve it.
