Perl vs PHP, PYTHON


I was just wondering which language would you prefer the most.. I for one, will always go with Perl as it is my most favorite language, easy to master, strongest language in the scripting world, often used for system admin stuff, web-developing with many modules and an all-rounder...

Thanks,
Shebang

I just recently started looking into python, as I realized I didn't really know anything about it. So far I really like it, but because I am much more comfortable with perl I would still tend to use that if I had to bang something fairly large scale out quickly. I don't use either for web developing, so I don't even count PHP as a viable option, though I suppose I could use it to do most of what I do with perl.

Python. Hands down. The other two don't hold a candle to it (Perl pretends to, but it really doesn't).

I'll agree Strike, after about a weeks worth of straight python, that it is a pretty great programming language. But it is hard to say it is "hands down" better then Perl. Perl certainly has some things it does better then just about anything else.
