Perl & C/C++by hemaexp26 (Novice)
|on Mar 28, 2003 at 07:20 UTC||Need Help??|
hemaexp26 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am doing my final semester and want to do my project in graphics applications. But i have no idea about my software selection. Some people insisted me to select C/C++. My application simply reads a text file which contains some geometry informations (like 4 points of a rectangle) and displays it in graphical format (stack of rectangles).
When discussing with experts i came to know that C/C++ is a power full language but it lacks in GUI and asked me to select any one of GUI tool kits.I got two GUI tool kits GTK and TK. What is the diffence between these two tools? Both support multi-platform?As i said earlier my application simply reads a text file and displays it in visual format. I planned to use C/C++ for file processing. But when i studied PERL document (iam new to perl. just now started) i came to know its powerful scripting capabilities. It provides lot of functions for string manipulation, file handling etc.
Can i use Perl instead of C/C++ in my application? I hope it is easy to embedding Perl/tk or Perl/GTK than C++/tk. If that is the case Perl is better choice than C/C++? How do u rank Perl compared to C/C++? Is Perl is more powerfull than C/C++?Let me clear my doubts.
