in thread Perl VS Python

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"

        Just trying to stay in the same fruit category as the original Python example :)
