That is just because this particular print statement
is compatible with Perl. If you had tried anything
more complex then it would have bombed.

I'm not sure what you mean here but you could run the
code above in any version of Python v2 or perl and
it should work. The first6 line is a comment so
ignored by both perl and python. And the print
statement works in both languages.
