Perl and C are used for different purposes, as are other languages. there is no "best" language - only those that are more and less suitable for different tasks.

The first thing to do is to think about why you want to learn to program, and what you want to acheive with it.

There are many good reads on the web to start you off on organising your thoughts about this. This is quite useful as a first read click here

Search google with different phrases to find more good sources.
