It is said that the design of perl is influenced by lisp.
=E2=80=9CInfluenced by AWK, BASIC, BASIC-PLUS, C, C++, Lisp, Pascal, sed, U=
Does anyone know any evidence, that Larry Wall (the creator of Perl)
knew any lisp before release of perl 4 (1991-1994)?

Re: does Larry Wall knew lisp when perl was taking shape?
There's strong evidence:
For good or ill, when I went off to grad school, I studied
linguistics, so the only computer language I used there was
LISP. It was my own personal McCarthy era.
Is LISP a candidate for a scripting language? While you can
certainly write things rapidly in it, I cannot in good
conscience call LISP a scripting language. By policy, LISP
has never really catered to mere mortals.
And, of course, mere mortals have never really forgiven
LISP for not catering to them.
