Howdy, Mauricio, Patrick

I am curious as to why you think python is always the better choice? (ie.
error handling, or whatever; or is it just always so in Patrick's use case
and the example code you supplied there)

Also, I you don't mind me asking. I'm new python scripting in LibreOffice.

Do you have recommendations for setting up tools with LibreOffice to with
Python scripts and perhaps then turning those into an extension.

Right now I am using the following: LibreOffice 6.x, APSO (latest), MRI
(latest), MS Video Code. Which of those would, if any, would you suggest I
look at replacing.

Thanks and best wishes,


I'm sorry, my english is very basic, but I will try tell you my experience.

I developed Basic for many years, in Excel, and Calc. I writed a book (in spanish) of more 500 
pages for develop macros in OpenOffice/Libre with Basic.

But... I knowed Python... and all changed. I thing, Python is better than Basic in all; it learn 
easyly, extensive core, libraries of third, very good documentation, and the most important, a 
great comunity.

If you want learn ans use Basic, not problem, but where Basic end, Python just beginning
