I'm kind of old school (for a good meaning of the world "old"), and I really am. I was there when Guido van rossum
hadn't produced 1.1 of Python
still answered newbies in the USENET newsgroup
However, I seem to remember that later on, after yet another silly question, Guido van Rossum himself answered with something like "You make lots of questions you should solve yourself", but have been unable to find it. Maybe it was direct email. BTW, that might explain the fact tha I stick to Perl
. Which, at that time, was into version 4.
