Off late i am finding myself reading too much of python all the time . Some of my friends have been cripping that i have become a Pythiam 😀 . Honestly speaking i love this language , and gasp with such amount of awe how this language is a piece of art to work with . It is the amount of time it saves me in doing a lot of work . People often dont know the power of the language, my colleagues often ask me is it not just a scripting language ? I just reply back to them that its a programming language which is a credible alternative to Perl or much worse bash scripts .
When i use python language these days, mostly all the time working on some stuff that is pretty much insane for most people around me . I at times become brain dead seeing ugly perl code that are just trivialities in python 🙂 .
I have started to like the ipython interpreter off late , its very useful with built in auto-complete functionalities among others .I worked with the pexpect library for automating operations over ssh recently. The itertools , funtools modules are my personal favourites . I love programming when its working with python, the disadvantage of which is that most other languages look very ugly to me .
