  I think you're convincing me. Python syntax in general looks a lot cleaner
than Perl. I'm learning Perl at the moment using material from the Web and it's
not as easy as I thought it would be. I'm interested in having a go at OO
programming in Perl but the examples I've seen aren't very clear to a newbie.
