I am Orso, an Italian Vectorscripter since many years. I feel very comfortable with VS but will now switch over to Python for even more power. I will try to share here comments, problems -and solutions- from the point of view of a non-programmer. --Orso.b.schmid (talk) 08:13, 17 May 2015 (EDT)

Lists are powerful in Python, below some fascinating lists manipulations. They remind me of Applescript:
months = "Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul" months = months.split() # no splitter defined and it will use the empty space --> ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul'] months2 = "Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul" # overwrite a copy months2.split(', ') # use comma and empty space as splitter --> ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul'] months.append('Jul') # append adds an item to a list --> ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul'] months.pop() # pop fetches the last item of a list --> 'Jul' ', delirious '.join(months) # --> 'Jan, delirious Feb, delirious Mar, delirious Apr, delirious May, delirious Jun, delirious Sep' '-'.join(months[1:3]) # --> 'Feb-Mar'
