in thread Perl VS Python

So, does Python not have variable interpolation? That would be a deal-breaker.

    No, not like perl, it relies on % and dictionaries (hash). Ex
    print "Hello %(name)s! Today is %(day)s!" % ( 'name' : 1, 'day' : 2 );
    In perl that might be you might write
    use Text::Sprintf::Named; my $formatter = Text::Sprintf::Named->new( {fmt => "Hello %(name)s! Today is %(day)s!"} ); $formatter->format({args => {'name' => "John", 'day' => "Thursday"}});

      Huh?

      In Perl you might write

      printf("Hello %s! Today is %s!", 'John', 'Thursday');

      At least try to make an apples to apples comparison.

        Myopic much? named sprintf compared to named sprintf
        print "Hello $name! Today is $day!\n"
