in reply to Perl VS Python

I think it no good, to compare Perl and Python. Both have different goals. I think Perl is "more multipurpose". But Python has great object oriented part and I think Python is easier to learn. It's a bit like BASIC (away from the OO part).

    ORLY? Larry Wall:

    Python

    After Tcl came Python, which in Guido's mind was inspired positively by ABC, but in the Python community's mind was inspired negatively by Perl. I'm not terribly qualified to talk about Python however. I don't really know much about Python. I only stole its object system for Perl 5. I have since repented.
