I’m sold on Python. I am having way too many “Why was I doing this the long way with PHP?” moments.
Some fun with PHP:
echo 10010.10 - 10009.93; //0.17000000000007
Same thing in Python
print 10010.10 - 10009.93 #0.17
I also saw on Reddit this “magic kill number” that simply hangs most versions of PHP5.
$d = 2.2250738585072011e-308;
Hangs the default install of PHP in Ubuntu 10.10 (PHP 5.3.3-1ubuntu9.1). Crazy.
