in reply to perl not omnipotent? let's see!

The question shouldn't be 'CAN it be done in Perl' but 'how EFFICIENT is the Perl solution'.

That, as most of you are aware, becomes the dreaded 'How good is/are your benchmark test(s)?' scenario.

So, that being said, there will never be a solution that will fit everyone's criteria. Those that believe in the power of perl will continue to do so, and those that do not, will not... IMO of course.

If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day.
If you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat.
If you talk about fish to a starving man, you're a consultant.

[ambrus]: Corion: which coordinate system is the upside down one?
[Corion]: ambrus: "the other" ;) To me, "normal" for GUIs means (0,0) is left-upper corner of the monitor/window. But for Prima, the lower-left corner it is ;)
[Corion]: Which would be OK for mathematics and paper, for me ;)
[ambrus]: Ok, so Prima has a postscript-like coordinate system
