in reply to a Couple of questions!

c) One teacher of mine said to me that python is far more better than perl!?!?

Your teacher is a moron. I remember my teacher telling us that Pascal is far more better than C. Perl and Python (and Ruby) are very similar languages, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. To proclaim any one of these as "far more better" is a breathtaking display of arrogance, it being largely a matter of taste (though I prefer Perl to Python).

    I'd have problems with a teacher that used the phrase "far more better" just from the abuse of English.

    Having taught some programming in my time, I will say that Pascal is better than C --- as an initial teaching language.

    From there you can happily go down to Asm or up to ruby/python as a next step. Or go to C and start teaching more complicated aspects. Pascal makes a pleasant introduction to many of the useful base concepts of programming.
