Greek doesn't look like our texts, but what does that say about grammar or pronunciation? Is Greek harder because it uses other symbols?

Even if Python were easier because of its curlyless syntax, does the dictated whitespace make it any easier? (Can editors find block begins/ends?)

How about all the other features a modern language has. Do your scripts not use regexes? How is a standard object defined? How are errors usually handled (can you do an easy "or die")?

Programming efficiency is a lot more than avoiding line noise. In business life, time really IS money.

How about freely available ready-to-use modules? HTML parsers? XML parsers? Database drivers? Conversion tools? Inline::-alikes?

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
