Have to beg differ. I once red a comment (I think it was in a German
newsgroup) from a 42 old developer (who wanted just to become a hobby
programmer on Linux) that he found it much more straightforward to
program in C than in Python. Note he was at that time a beginner and
searched for help a few weeks ago in that specific newsgroup whether he
should learn C or Python or Perl or Pascal or ... He wrote that
everything in C makes sense to him.
I did not follow the comments in the following but the post surprised me
that one finds C more easily to grasp than Python, especially when he is
a novice in programming.
