Perl: the Markov chain saw

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I read the "Notes from the initial brainstorming session" about the development of Perl 6. One thing specially captured my attention:

<quote> Tom Christansen made a series of observations recently on where Perl and Python differ, and where Python offers improvements over Perl. This list of points should be considered when designing the Perl6 language. </quote>

I like Python very much. I think it's a good language for scripting and prototyping, as Perl. If I'll have this possibility, I'd like to use Python in a freshmen class to teaching programming. I'm glad to see Perl community (I know, Tom Christiansen is not Perl community) looking at other languages to improve Perl. What do you think?

Note I know this could be seen as a heretic meditation. Of course, I don't want to flame.

See you

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.
