If you want to have a reasonable conversation regarding the positive and negative points of the language, feel free, but I''m not going to let the Lounge method of garbage posts spill over here. Future "yeah" and "no" without reasonable explanations as to why you like or dislike it will force me to shut this down.

"Not worth it" as in you have better things to do with your time? Don''t learn it then. I am sure the Python community will survive without your help.

The only non-python code I have written in the past year or so was C++ extension code for python.

Impressive, but what are you doing?

I admit that it''s been a year since I''ve done anything in C++ too. But I tried Java, C# and Lisp instead...

I think learning Python a little can be good. That way, if you need to learn it in the future, you already have a base to work on
Of course, you have to consider what you could possibly use Python for. Some programmers just don''t need to know anything about it and still manage.

I think some other people around here need some change in their attitude or some help with it. I know Mihail is not popular around and people got their reasons for that, but others play dirty with him. Mihail is the one that is visible, but "more wicked forces lurk in the shadows that nobody notice"...

Why do you want to learn it, and when you do, what do you plan on doing with it?

I have recently wrapped a C++ library I wrote for uni using Boost:ython

Now instead of starting a new C++ project I just fire up the Python interpreter and use it like matlab. It rocks.

I''d also like to hear people''s opinions of the Boost build tool bjam. The only documentation I can find on it reads like an abstract academic document on the principles of the build process which doesn''t help very much.
