Another example of ignorance.

Perl's "." operator and Pythons .append() list method, are two entirely different things.

You've also managed to miss (like many), for primary points of the examples I cited:

a.) clearer, more concise syntax
b.) a shorter path to producing autogenerating documentation
c.) having to only worry about, maybe, 4-5 different styles to maintain vs. 20
d.) far fewer rules to remember

I did say I was done with this thread, but I refuse to leave ignorance unchecked.

I wrote this thread, hoping for concrete examples to the contrary of what I've said, and all I've ended up with is general "cuz I like it better" comments made by people who know almost nothing about Python.

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.
