in thread Perl vs. Python: Looking at the Code
I could do the same with Perl:array = array + list
But I don't see how that helps your case. Perl's push is shorter than either of these:@array = (@array, @list);
And Python's append() would also be shorter:push @array,@list;
But from your previous comment I presume that append() will not accept a list as a parameter. I think I probably want extend() for that last example.
Of course, the length comparisons vary, depending on your variable names and your willingness to sacrifice legibility. But I don't think that's an argument that anybody wants to make.
Slightly offtopic: I'm just amazed that Python allows more than one way to do something. I thought that was supposed to be evil or something...
