in reply to Re^4: Perl Vs Ruby - Benchmark?
in thread Perl Vs Ruby

Language benchmarks are in general irrelevant and stupid. If you insist try this link for some more.
Ruby has a dynamic type system, you can add methods to an object on the fly.This makes it slow, but this is also why it has Rails.
What's the point of the benchmark again?
