I think that 'Python vs. Perl' is a very valid question to ask
for esp. for someone who has tried neither. It is also a
question worth asking again every so often as both languages
It need not lead to trolls or flamewars if people gave
intelligent answers and do not become overly sentimental
or defensive about their favorite language/technology.
I've learned some new things reading good arguments about
Perl's virtues in this thread and have cringed seeing
newbies flamed/ganged up on for questioning Python.
Fwiw, I'm *heavily* in favour of Python over Perl and
consider it the correct choice in 90% or more of
programming situations but am always interested in
reading intelligent criticisms of it.
Python vs. Ruby, anyone? :-)
