Python Love

::: {.Section1}  Rory picks up on the fact that Python isn’t really object-oriented and wonders if it’s overrated. (But, for Rory, he does so in a very tentative manner. He hardly uses the words “sucks” at all.) Python gets a lot of buzz, but Rory’s criticisms are right on. Ruby is better as a language, but doesn’t have the tools. Since what I’m looking for in a scripting language is purely practical, I’m planning on sticking with Python for the next couple of years. As a matter of fact, I’ve got the Python grammar sitting in one of “Maybe/Someday” folders, right alongside a bunch of OneNote pages about creating an alternative shell for Monad / Windows Shell. :::
