But overall perl is ok. It does the job. It provides a good overall basic toolset. I try to avoid modules when possible, especially when not contained in perl core and thus giving up comfort, reimplementing things which are done in a better quality, for reducing Installation efforts needed and keeping Codebase small. (If you use modules, you may end up with other dependent modules).
This is precisely the reason I use, (occasionally now), Python. It is useful enough with its builtin libraries. I try to steer clear of those libraries that could be dependencies for any project, especially for the AMIGA.
I have not ignored this Perl project I will follow on soon with a drawing routine to join up the dots.

NAME
Shedskin - An experimental (restricted) Python-to-C++ Compiler SYNOPSIS
shedskin [OPTION]... FILE DESCRIPTION
Shed Skin is an experimental compiler, that can translate pure, but implicitly statically typed Python (2.4-2.6) programs into optimized C++. It can generate stand-alone programs or extension modules that can be imported and used in larger Python programs. Besides the typing restriction, programs cannot freely use the Python standard library (although about 25 common modules, such as random and re, are currently supported). Also, not all Python features, such as nested functions and variable numbers of arguments, are supported. OPTIONS
-a --ann Output annotated source code (.ss.py) -b --nobounds Disable bounds checking -e --extmod Generate extension module -f --flags Provide alternate Makefile flags -l --long Use long long integers -m --makefile Specify alternate Makefile name -n --silent Silent mode, only show warnings -o --noassert Disable assert statements -r --random Use fast random number generator (rand()) -s --strhash Use fast string hashing algorithm (murmur) -w --nowrap Disable wrap-around checking -x --traceback Print traceback for uncaught exceptions -L --lib Add a library directory 0.9.2 2012-05-05 SHEDSKIN(1)
