Perl doesn't have lists. Python doesn't have built-in arrays.
Python, however, has an array module as part of its standard library.
I will assume that a list module is available for Perl.
I wasn't trying to compare features, I was simply pointing out
that your comparison was Apples and Oranges, and therefore at
least somewhat invalid.
