I always forget about printf in Perl. In Python (3+), there's no interpolation, so I'd have to do print("Hello {}, how are you {}".format(name, today)).

No matter what you want to print with variables, you have to do it this way (at least for a normal print statement), including all the parens and cruft.

I've taken perl interpolation for granted me thinks ;)

Update: While I'm complaining about Python not being Perl, I'll mention I had a colleague (Python coder) state "I bet Perl doesn't have list comprehensions"... I said: say for @array, where they said: [x for x in array], but that only worked for them in REPL... to do it with print in a script, one has to do extra trickery.

I'm only saying this because I've been privy to some of your Ruby rants lately. I just love Perl.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
