comparing C language and Perl language

How does C language compare with Perl language in terms of problem solving complexity? Please elaborate and discuss about this comparison (generic comparison and/or technical comparison).
And please suggest links to webpages that give extensive information about this comparison. Thank you very much!
(This is not a homework question. This is a discussion topic, so I need information for my research)

Sounds like homework to me!

We are not allowed to do your homework. That is against EE policy.

Here is an example of how nicely Perl can be obfuscated.

With a little work, C is just as powerful when it comes to code obfuscation, as is demonstrated here:

http://remus.rutgers.edu/~rhoads/Code/hanoi3.c

and you have to love the self reproducing obfuscated Palindromic C code found here:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Obfuscation is a totally useless feature, but it is fun. =)
