Not in my experience.  In fact, the most common references to non-Perl
technologies is re. HTML/JavaScript (which are rather abrubtly led
toward other NGs).  In my memory, Python has been brought up several
times in clpmisc in a very _positive_ way: endorsing it....which is how
I came to check it out myself.  If it hadn't been for Abigail (a p5p),
I'd never have tried Python.

AFAIK, the only larger source of aggression than the anti-Perl
Pythonistas is the anti-C++ Smalltalkers.  <wink>

Well of *course* Perl should not be taught to everyone. It should
only be taught to people who want to like their computers.
