Programming style in Perl?

I work in Java so basically I use OOP paradigm during coding.I am about to start working in Perl and I was wondering what is the paradigm that Perl developers follow.In wiki it mentions that it supports many paradigms but I am not sure I understand this since it is a scripting language.So my question is:Are the object oriented patterns I'm familiar with in Java idiomatic in Perl, or will I need significant change to my design style to write effective Perl?Note: This is not a question to critique Perl. I actually have to work in Perl and would like to understand how the current way I program will change.
