    Isn't this just a difference in operator precedence.

    foo = (1 IF 0); # foo set to nothing

    instead of

    (foo = 1) IF 0; # foo not touched since !0

    Its for this reason that I like Mojo::Template. There is no new language/syntax to learn, its just Perl. Now I know that's not for everyone, but I like it because I don't have to learn something new.

    For someone accustomed to Perl, TT is often full of (good or bad) surprises..

    Which is quite unfortunate, given the fact that it's mainly used in Perl based shops.

    I've never used Perl so I can't comment on Perl vs. Python, but you missed two critical libraries/tools that Python also brings to scientific computing:

    pandas (http://pandas.pydata.org/): offers efficient R-like DataFrames with tons of built-in capability

    IPython Notebook (http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/dev/interactive/htmlnotebook.html): provides a web-based notebook that enables scientists to log their research in HTML-like cells; embed images, figures, videos, and external web pages; run Python/R/octave code in code cells; and do all kinds of shell commands, data manageme…

    I am not sure what (3) exactly mean. For (1) and (2), Perl can also be done with just few lines. For example, with Chart::Gnuplot, it would be like:

    
    my $chart = Chart::Gnuplot->new(
        output => "test.png",
        xlabel => "x-axis",    # annotation text
        xrange => [0, 10],     # axis range
    );
    
    

    # About data point array 1
    my $dataSet1 = Chart::Gnuplot::DataSet->new(
    points => \@data1,
    color => "blue", # line color chosen
    );

    # About data point array 2
    my $dataSet2 = Chart::Gnuplot::DataSet->new(
    points => \@data…
