That's a big advantage of python over perl right now: python's
ctypes library. There is a project now to port ctypes to
perl.

Perl had previously borrowed Python's object mechanism. Just
now it is finally being replaced, by Moose/Mouse in Perl 5,
and the internal object system in Perl 6.

I, for one, have had a great time with the python-derived
perl object system.

Otherwise, perl's vast CPAN libraries, cover many problem
domains.

For optimizing perl, we have Devel::NYTProf, which
profiles the time spent in each subroutine. (As the name
suggests, the New York Times underwrote the development
costs.)

Good for you! So is perl. :-)

I thought I would like to learn some other language, either
python, ruby, Tcl or Forth, but usually I have some
practical problem to get done, and the more familiar
language gets used.

Perl does have a few syntax quirks. The deferencing syntax
is particularly awkward. There is also the oddity (and
feature) of list/scalar context.

For me, reading music is awkward, and so is reading python,
but I don't blame the notation in either case.

Best,

Joel
