in reply to Language Conversion

Specifically, I'm looking for something to take the pain out of converting a few subroutines into C or C++ for my current Perl project for security reasons.

"For security reasons"?

I don't understand that, especially since every single piece of Perl code is implemented in C already. The only thing that's not in C is the order in which the C code is to be executed.

      No, just interfaces to other systems.

        So it's not for security reasons, it's to interface to other systems?

        You could write an XS module to interface with the C interface. XS isn't pretty, but it's definitely easier than porting an entire application! And then there's Inline::C that makes it even easier!
