Python to the rescue
Python is my now unequivocally my favorite general purpose programming language. I’m working on a project to build a compiler for a subset of Ada for my Compilers course.
After spending the better part of my Sunday trying to write something to translate a CFG written in BNF into standard notation using C++ I decided to hand the task off to Python instead. About 2 hours later I finished my translator and was a lot more confident in the correctness of my code than I would ever be with a C++ program.
