When I worked in Perl I was about as productive in writing code
as with Python, so this feels about right.
The advantages for Python come when many people work together
(either on a team or pulling in sources from different places)
- it scales well, so it's better in larger projects
- I understand how to do OO programming in Python
- it's easier for the non-software developers I work with
to use Python for their programming tasks
- there are fewer corners to worry about. Perl is
deliberately full of pointy edges.
These are not orthogonal.
