I've merely been learning more about another language (Python, you may have noticed), and found some things I think I may like better, and wanted to see the contrary to this viewpoint (as might think these are better, but they aren't, because look at what Perl can do, etc.).

But... But... But... You're asking us to form your opinion on perl.

Python is just different. Better than perl at some tasks, worse than perl at other tasks, but mostly just a bit different, with different goals.

If you like python, go code in python for a while, and come back with a good contrast on what you can really do better/easier in python, and what is really harder in python (vs. perl, of course). That would be something worth discussing.

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.
