I've used Perl in the past and was quite happy with it. But lots of folks use Python nowadays. So what is Perl better at than Python? Is my time better spent learning Perl or Python? And Perl faster than Python, especially when it comes to creating reports from text and putting in CSV or excel? Can Perl do parallel processing better than Python and most importantly, does regex and Perl Modules for CSV, ssh, excel, REST etc play well with parallel processing? I don't know anything about parallel processing but I'm sure I'll need it hence asking, because there's some text files that go 10000 lines or some that are 200MB PLUS in size..Asked a friend and he said Python is better at parallel processing so jus wanna know.
