Your argument is at best trivial. Simply comparing the
syntaxes of two languages is not enough for me to consider
switching. I am sitting in on a Python class and so far i
haven't seen a need for it in my queue. I'd rather spend
my energy learning Perl6.
Yes, you may be saving a character or two now, but wait
until you need the full power of CPAN (and yes, this
comment will self-explode when/if the Python 'CPAN' finally
catches up to Perl's).
Python: it's just like Perl - but different!
quote the mothra in the Chatterbox:
"realize that CPAN is just a really big collection of code that has all the same drawbacks as mentioned in the post."
i don't need to comment on this, do i? ;)
