Fw: Python vs. VBScript vs. JavaScript in context of WindowsScripting Host?

P: n/a
Yes, but I was referring to VBScript apart from the runtime children like
Dictionary, Network etc., like the C language apart from the Standard
Library. I agree, though, Dictionaries are cool, however supplied.

A Dictionary object is the equivalent of a PERL associative array. Items can be any form of data, and are stored in the array. Each item is
associated with a unique key. The key is used to retrieve an individual
item and is usually an integer or a string, but can be anything except
an array.

I missed the beginning of this thread so I may be missing the
point too...

If anyone is interested in comparing VBScript with Python the
rewrite of my web tutor uses VBScript as a comparison language
(along with Javascript) against Python. The rewrite is only half
way finished but all the basic topics (data,sequences,loops and
branches) have been converted already, The OO bits and error
handling are the big ommissions for now:
