I think this is the right section for this. Being new to perl, I have been mainly doing my learning from the great publications from O'Reily. At this time, I am currently learning Perl and Java at the same time. (No I'm not usually a masocist.) Anyway, as Perl 6 is about to make its debut, I have heard that Python will be integrated to Perl. Now I don't know much about Python, but does anyone know if this is true? Do you think that this will mean that we will need to "re-learn" Perl? What benefits would we see by having Python integrated into Perl anyway?
Update:I guess I should look further into these rumors. In a way, I am glad it was only and April fool's gag. Although, it would be interesting to see what would come out of such a project.
