Bash vs Python

Python is obviously better than expect for many reasons such as efficieny, opsys availabiliy, functions etc), but can anybody tell me how it is better structurally.

I.e. If automating a procedure such as 'Autoftp' login why is Python better than Bash? Yes it uses only one file, istead of the two files which would have been used by bash and expect, but why is it better overall for such procedures?

The Bish has spoken

My only question is: If Python is the better tool then why wonder how it is better...

If you really need to know try using www.google.com to find comparisons between the two. Or look in a Python progamming book. It may tell you just to be braggadocios!!
