That is one tangent it went off in for a long time, it is not what was asked at the starts.Heater wrote: ↑Fri Apr 12, 2019 7:16 pmjahboater,
It's true that when selecting a language fro a task there is actually a lot more than just the actual language syntax and semantics to weigh up.
Is it any kind of standard?
Does it have a large use base?
Is there good documentation, tutorial, books etc available for it?
Are there multiple vendors for compilers/interpreters?
Does it perform well?
Does it fit in the space available?
And so on, and so on.
Certainly having a wide range of good quality libraries and modules available ranks high on the list of desirable features.
But this thread has been about writing code (and reading it), in the language, syntax and semantics.
It then went of on a script basic tangent.and then MD5 was asked, no limits on what could be used.
I used what was *built in* to Python 3.5.? and whatever is on my mobile phone.
So in my mind, a standard library if you must.
You might want it go back and re-read what was actually asked.
