You Used Perl to Write WHAT?!

January 27, 2008

Nice article entitled You Used Perl to Write WHAT?! Most of the pros/cons apply to Python as well. Python programmers like to feel all superior to their Perl counterparts, but knowing when not to use a language is as important as knowing how to use a language. IMO, the ease of using Pyrex to write a C extension, or the maturity of packages like numpy remove some of the limitations to high performance computing. And I think that CGI and web.py make the web a perfectly valid place for Python to play.
