Python is a wonderful language for quite a broad
range of application development <URL:http://
www.sunworld.com/sunworldonline/swol-02-1998/swol-02-python.html>.

People often compare Perl and Python.  I argue
that, yes, it is correct to judge them similar
in scope.  Some people find this misleading.
Python has *wider* applicability than Perl.

Many people regard Perl's syntax as "more C-like"
than Python's.

You will find a visit to <URL:http://www.python.org/>
rewarding.  Good answers to, "What is Python?",
"Where can I read example Python programs", and
many other questions appear there.
