OK, I'm probably going to get caned for this, but I've just been looking at Python, and I think I'm in love. It has a lot of things Right, (although it also has a few things I'm not very keen on) although I can't exactly put my finger on them. It was, however, wonderful to pick up quite a long Python program, knowing virtually nothing about the language, and completely understand it. I'm particularly impressed by things like the "in" operator, "lambda", the OO implementation and particularly its operator overloading. And it feels clean.
So I've got this idea that I really can't shake off. It has to happen. And I think I'm screwed up enough to make it happen: B::Deparse::ToPython.
My, they have been putting drugs in my coffee.
