You know that MIT just made Python their standard programming language for their entire CS curriculum, right?

there are definatly ways around that, or to 'fix it', but it shouldn't be a problem in the first place.


btw - we've had this conversation before.
M-x tabify/untabify

But it does suck if you're maintaining someone else's code and they use a different practice than your preference - in other languages it's merely a cosmetic annoyance. But that's the game when it comes to other's code -- some intern did his senior project at this place I used to work. Named every variable out of a comic book, ex for(spiderman = 0; spiderman < superman; ++spiderman) [he also loved useless optimizing, hence ++x over x++]. No one noticed until after he left and someone wanted something changed

I'm really not trying to get into a 'my language is better than yours' geek off, I just don't understand how someone who should know better would say nothing big is done in PHP.

In fact, upon further research. Google uses Python extensively combined with their own database structure called "BigTable".
Python is quite powerful, easy to learn, and there's a reason it's used by Google and MIT. It's also quite extensible - I use Jython, the Java implementation of Python, as the scripting language for all my WebLogic stuff.

Look, I know there's some big players using PHP. Let me restate myself. Most high-volume big-player web dev work is done in Java and .NET. Sure, PHP is a player - but going by volume alone, in terms of how many bytes is shipped around the internet by a given language, Java and .NET are the most popular.

That might not have been for optimization. Having had some assembler exposure before C, it always seemed more natural to me to express "increment x" as ++x rather than x++.

++x and x++ are not the same thing (in most languages)

its not a matter of preference

one is preincrement one is postincrement.

In many, many cases you aren't using the result, as in the for loop of the post I was responding to.

i'm just pointing out that it doesn't matter what is natural for you when you say 'increment x'.

they do different things.

javascript is very amorphous and can be utilized in soooo many different ways that it's ridiculous, but it can also be used quite eloquently and since it's the only language that browsers allow you to use for interacting with the DOM, it's not going anywhere... i've used it for so long that i'm very fond of it now and would feel bad if they replaced it :\

i jus thate people that put { on the same line as their function definitions.
