Python for Linux

Post by walter_mellon » Thu Sep 04, 2008 1:42 pm

O'Reilly has just released Python for Unix and Linux System Administration by Jeremy Jones and Noah Gift, an event I have been waiting a long time for. This book could go a long way towards driving a stake through Perl's heart and help establish Python as the scripting language of choice on *nix systems. Get a copy soon and help rid the world of legacy Perl.

Perl is a very powerful language but man does that syntax give me a headache. I'd take python any day over Perl.
