in thread I want you to convince me to learn Perl

Obviously, I did not intend my words to be taken quite so literally as to suggest that one would “translate from” one to the other.   Rather, the Python language has many list processing builtins and idioms ... a general flavor for doing things, if you will ... that draws many inspirations from the LISP approach to doing these same things.

We hardly need to “translate code from X to Y,” anyway, since we always have ready access at-hand to both worlds.   Our professional tool-boxes contain many tools in parallel.
