Exponentiation in python

pow is a reserved word in python. ** does the same thing. this creates redundancy and is bad design. pow creates error @ compile time. (without arguments). this is BAD.Agree Or Not ?

Well, according to the principle 'There should be only one way to do stuff', Python would have to call it 'bad design' themselves. ;-) But it's really not realistic to assume that there is no overlap at all in a living language - not if you want it to improve over time. You should look into C++ - you'll be very happy with Python after that, regarding overlap. No agreement with your statement to pow, though. Every function has its specification (how you call it, what you give and what you get back), and if you fail to use it correctly, you'll get an error. It would actually be worse if you got no error, but instead something crazy happened. (Again, look into C to make that experience.)

Sanjay Kamath, just as standardization hasn't ever happened with natural languages, it won't happen with programming languages. They are living beings, sort of.
