P.S. You'll get further faster with Python than with Java or Perl,
where you posted similar "how do I master language X?" requests. I've
used Java and suffered through Perl. Compared to Perl, Python a) has
less magic symbology/punctuation, and b) treats you more like an adult
("open x or die"? Come on!). Java syntax is so bloated you have to
tack on Eclipse plug-ins by the fistful to auto-generate the wrapper
junk code around the code you really wanted to get run.
Get thee to www.python.org, and get going, post haste!
