mothra, honestly, what did you expect? Posting a pro-Python screed in a pro-Perl community, then stomping off to sulk when the responses you get don't meet your expectations of Python background knowledge is like whacking a wasp nest with a baseball bat, then complaining when you get stung.

And if you're going to give Python plusses for the bits of its syntax that are terser than Perl's, you might want to consider Perl constructs that are terser than Python's equivalents. I have no first-hand experience with Python, so I can't really comment, but I'm told that regex matching and interpolating variables into strings are much more cumbersome in Python than in Perl. More propaganda?

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.
