in reply to Perl vs. Python: Looking at the Code
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).
jeffaPython: 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? ;)
