in thread Perl VS Python

The problem I have with python is the data typing. Try this in python:

x = " 10 " # spaces in the declaration y = 5 z = x + y
I know this is a no-no but the point is this is no problem in perl. In python you need to convert the data into int. I think a scripting language should handle this for the programmer. python also has a datatype "None" which is very annoying. It can be very annoying when you get data returned from a subroutine that is data-type "None" and then you need to figure out how to get it back to a string. That's python. Python also seems to take away the Perl feature of "There's more than one way to do it". I like this feature and I think a lot of Perl programmers do too.
