The future of Perl and Python: Parrot

Accidentally I stepped over this old interview with Perl’s inventor Larry Wall and Pyhton’s creator Guido van Rossum about the future of both languages: a joint of both language, like this example shows:

# copy stdin to stdout, except for lines starting with #
    while left_angle_right_angle:
        if dollar_underscore[0] =eq= "#":
            continue_next;
        }
        print dollar_underscore;
    }

Are you smiling? If not you may be not the right person for this blog post 😉
Mhm… this would be a good test at job interviews – just present the code example and watch the mimics.
