in thread Modules as executable scripts?
And who needs it? Here's what you cannot do in Python that you can in Perl and Ruby: run Python as an ad hoc filter. So there is that. If you are trying to say Python is better than Perl then you just failed.
You can't do that in Python! But you can run a .pm file as a script if you are dumb enough to think that's a good thing.perl -pi.bak -e's/foo/bar/g' python.txt
