    I went through the exact same thing with Elliot Harold, author of XML in a Nutshell. He's a big-wig Java author (author of Java I/O, and some other stuff), and takes every opportunity to dig at Perl.

    The sad thing is the same people who take digs at Perl for not being a real language state quite emphatically that Python is a real language. Yet the differences between the two are small once you dig deeper than syntax.
