Could you please tell me WHY and HOW Perl is better than Python?
My co-worker keeps telling me how Python is 'powerful' every single day... He says Python is much better than Perl, because it has simpler syntax and design, etc....
Is Python really going to replace Perl as the king of scripting languages? Will Perl 6 strike back at Python?
Well, I have ask a few monks and bishops about this already. But I really would like to hear other Perl Masters' thoughts and advices on this issue as well.
Replaced CODE tag with em to give similar visual effect without long lines
