In reply to: Offtopic: Python
Parent article: Chandler finally reaches a 1.0 release
I seem to have touched a nerve there.
I now program almost entirely in OCaml, which
gives me the real world stuff (loads of libraries etc), performance very close to C,
low memory usage, proper error checking in the compiler, terse code, rapid development, etc. etc. In other words, all the advantages of Python, plus
the advantages of modern languages, without
having to wait for some far-off LLVM project to make Python fast.
