How would you convince someone that programming in Perl is better than

I need some 'intellectual ammo' to convince my colleagues that Perl is a
better, more powerful language, to do our scripting.  Any suggestions?

Legitimate of control structures for one; not having to deal with
intermediate storage to capture the output of sed/awk/grep;
access to OO; the ability to run shell commands if necessary;
compiled language rather than interpreted.
