in reply to Be grateful for Perl OO

1. Create your code in Perl to go with
2. templates to
3. create C++ code out of it.

You get all the benefits of Perl that you mentioned and your final code is in C++. While maintaining the code, you can just look at the Perl code and re-create the C++ code whenever required.

Lang::C++::Template? (was Re3: Be grateful for Perl OO)

    That brings up an interesting point - has anyone created something like C++::Template or Lang::C++::Template? Would there be a use for it? How would one go about specifying it?

    Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

      I simply used Text::Template to generate C code, it worked without any problems and too many escape codes.

      Just my two cents, -gjb-

    Ah, templating. A really handy technique many people forget about when writing C/C++ code, as we've been burned by the horror that is the C macro system. (Which, BTW, may well be of use here by itself)

    We're using a custom templating system pretty aggressively in parts of Parrot, I've used custom built templaters to preprocess a chunk of source before cut'n'pasting it into another source file somewhere--while it's not the most elegant solution, and you usually only do it once, it takes a lot of the error-proneness out of the drugework sourcecode.
