    Both Python and Perl are very popular and powerful programming
    languages.  Both Python and Perl share many similar feature: both offer
    powerful, rapid development, simple syntax, many add-on libraries,
    strong community following, and copious amounts of free, online
    documentation.  Both languages are also open source.

       It would really be usefull to get some more differences of these two programming languages listed here, not
       just similarities cause they really don't help in choosing. I'd crave for something like: " Python resembles
       this and that other languages where as Perl is more like YYY" and "The other is easier for beginners and the
       other more flexible if you have more experience" etc.

       Me again... A Python page offers links to comparisons:
       It would be nice if you linked one of those here.
