  • I took a brief gander at the Perl [torkington.com] and Python [blosxom.com] versions in that order.

    My first impression, after reading each in the browser for about a second each:

    • The Perl version starts with a nice long comment that describes WTF this script does.
    • The Python version starts out with gobs of plaintext
    • Oh, wait, it's not python code
    • Oh, wait, it starts out with """
    • Oh, wait, that's a triple-quoted strong. Where does it end?
    • Oh, wait, the python program starts out with pretty much the same commentary as the Perl program
