It has a very nice syntax, it also forces people into using coding standards like indentation.
I don't like Perl because you simply can't understand anything that has been written by somebody else.

Python seems to me to be "cleaner" than Perl. Python was more "designed" while Perl kind of "grew"...

Most definetely. I've been trying to pick up python,PHP,perl slowly, knowing they do similar things and although I've picked up a tad more of PHP - python seems very easy to learn and their documentation is excellent.
Hopefully this will "make me" use it :)

It's very easy to extend an existing C app using Python, just create a struct defining the new functions, make up the C function that will correspond to the Python call, include a call to Py_Initialize() at main and you're done.
I has lots of libraries available, you can even create a gtk app without touching C code using the python-gtk module.

Thanks for the input guys. From what Iíve been reading it seems to come down to code quality and the ability of one python programmer to comprehend what the other is doing.
I thought this was an interesting link.
Iím not ready to give up on perl, it took me long enough to lean it ;), but I might try to do a little python coding to see how I like it.
Duckula, Iíve been using ftpcube, which is a python/Gtk ftp client much like leechftp. Itís a nice high quality app, so I know the potential is there.
Perl also has access to the Gtk, but it looks a lot less developed than perl/TK. Or Python/Gtk.

Nah, I think PHP's docs are a lot better. It's a lot easier to find something there.
