  • One wonder at what point Python will find some richer and more nuanced way to define itself other than just 'like Perl, but not Perl'.

      One wonder at what point Python will find some richer and more nuanced way to define itself other than just 'like Perl, but not Perl'.

      I do not exagerrate, nor do I say this for humorous effect: Of all the Python programmers I have known, not one could explain why they like the language without first defining it in terms of some feature of Perl that they did not like. I know no Python programmers on a personal level who are not in fact disgruntled ex-Perl-programmers.
