I spent some time with Python and thought I'd share some opinions.
In short, my conclusion is that Python is a great programming language and I'll definitely invest some time into it: it has a clean syntax, it's very fast (2x compared to Perl), it has lexical scope (which is the only kind I care about, but see below), true objects, first class functions. It has its share of downsides and I hope I'm expressing them well here.
I welcome any Perl and Python experts to state their opinion on the matter, and maybe fix/optimize my code if this is possible.
