Comment Re:Python is readable (Score 1) 187

I do all my coding in vi. Generally "g/ /s///g" takes care of any white space problems, when importing folk code. I hated using curlies when I had to start using Perl/javascript/PHP, but I got used to them. It's just a mental flexibility thing. It sucks at first, but after a couple of days I have no trouble. One thing python has done for me vis. other languages is I don't nest. Generally, I have found if I have a big old stalactite of conditionals, that they can be replaced with a function call that simplifies the flow for other humans and my future self.
