Thanks for the valuable input of all of you , didn't have the time to reply in detail yet.

I have to wait to meet the new colleague to assess which kind of programming/python skills be already has.

After all Python is the new Basic, everyone claims he knows it. I don't wanna end up explaining Python to him or giving a class in language design...;)

> "PCRE" are not 100% "PC".

Minor nitpick. PCRE is also the name of an RE engine used by several products including PHP. Python has its own RE engine, trying to be PC

> Differences


  • function signatures
  • Most (all?) variables are references
  • strings are immutable
  • regex are first class objects in Perl
  • list flattening/interpolation in Perl

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
