in thread I want you to convince me to learn Perl
Go Learn Python
well, I did so. In the argument "line noise vs. significant whitespace", I opted for the latter and did not rue it. Of course there's more differences than that, but also they have more things in common than some people say.
So, why am I coming back to perl? Simple:
- Perlmonks - I am not disgusted by the Python community, but this one is superior, even if it should be run by benevolent dictators :-)
Of course, given that I started with FORTRAN and COBOL, both Perl and Python are big improvements to the art of programming :-) and anyway I am using both (and some other languages, too).
