in thread Perl vs. Python: Looking at the Code

>>> Python gives you more than one way to do it. IMHO it "takes away your options" in places where too many options are a Bad Thing anyway. (e.g. one way to define func parameters instead of using shift or @_ in Perl), totally eliminating any concerns about differences in {} style, because they're gone, etc.)

See you are missing it again the GOOD-THING as invented by python and/or perl designers may not be the good-thing for you... that is the main difference in Perl u take the responsibility to not screw the things in Python u do but not so much ... and the drawback of the python way is u loose the freedom of expressing yourself better...
Again this may be is what u want and it is OK. But perl-ers don't like this they like freedom.

    That's the same BS agrument (paraphrasing chromatic here IIRC) people always throw out about Java. It doesn't matter how hard language designers try to stop people from writing bad code, people still continue to amaze them with swill.
