in reply to Perl vs. Python: Looking at the Code

Some thoughts...


  1. I've come to see Python as an extremely cool language...for me, more useful than Perl
    yet your comparison boils down to less typing. Fair point, kind of, but that doesn't make something more useful.

  2. I think Python seems to win on most counts when measured against Perl.
    I still dont see how youv'e measured either of the languages except keystrokes and briefly touching on self-documentation. Does that sound dirty to anyone else?


  3. For reasons already cited "blah blah blah" or "yadda yadda yadda" don't fly. That's 100% pure opinion.
    Now Im really not here to stop on anyone's toes, but 90% of your post is opinion.
    To summarise my post, Can you repeat the question?
