It gives you a stacktrace if something is wrong. Exceptions are built-in.

Example:
Perl: 
  open FD "myfile.txt" || or die "Can't open file $!";

Python:
  fd=open("myfile.txt")

If the file can't be opened, then you get a nice traceback.

If you are programming/debugging cgi with cgitb you can even get a HTML
page full of important information.

Example:

I have a page why I switched from perl to python, but it is in german:

Objectoriented Programming in Perl is no fun. I switched from perl to
python because the emacs-perl mode was not able to understand all
those backslashed anymore (the code was correct).
