I am, actually, rather unhappy because the company I worked for decided to adopt Python as its scripting language. All those ad-hoc scripts that I used to write in Perl will from now on have to be written in Python. Having worked with Perl for a decade, I am quite familiar with it and I like it a lot. The developers, however, claim that Perl is hard to learn, something that I bitterly dispute, and that it has a lousy object model, which I must agree with.
A have bought a book about Python and will have to start reading it one of these days. I will try keeping my Perl skills current, though. I am writing a schema comparison tool that will be completely open source, in Perl. It will include Postgres, too.
