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.
