in thread Perl vs. Python: Looking at the Code


>>> Python gives you more than one way to do it. IMHO it "takes away your options" in places where too many options are a Bad Thing anyway. (e.g. one way to define func parameters instead of using shift or @_ in Perl), totally eliminating any concerns about differences in {} style, because they're gone, etc.)
>>>

See you are missing it again the GOOD-THING as invented by python and/or perl designers may not be the good-thing for you... that is the main difference in Perl u take the responsibility to not screw the things in Python u do but not so much ... and the drawback of the python way is u loose the freedom of expressing yourself better...
Again this may be is what u want and it is OK. But perl-ers don't like this they like freedom.
