in thread Perl VS Python

But Python has great object oriented part

ORLY? Larry Wall:

Python

After Tcl came Python, which in Guido's mind was inspired positively by ABC, but in the Python community's mind was inspired negatively by Perl. I'm not terribly qualified to talk about Python however. I don't really know much about Python. I only stole its object system for Perl 5. I have since repented.

[ambrus]: Hopefull the object isn't kept alive, the events are processed immediately, but you'd have to read a lot of source code to be sure about that.
[Corion]: ambrus: I think both of AnyEvent and Prima are pretty tight in their memory management because they both are cooperative multitasking and (I think) both use the Perl memory management for managing things
[Corion]: ambrus: And for Windows, I don't think that Prima knows if there still are messages queued for an object (in the Windows message loop). Finding that out would take lots of effort for little gain
[ambrus]: And even if this works, I'm still not sure you can't get double timeouts from a Timer.
[ambrus]: Corion: well Prima::Object says something like that the cleanup method will send an onDestory message and that you can't get more messages after cleanup, or something.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - I don't think the deep source dive will be necessary if things are implemented as simple as they could be :)) And hopefully I won't need (more) timely object destruction. I can update the screen at 60Hz and hopefully even do HTTP ...
[Corion]: ... transfers in the background. Now that I think about it, this maybe even means that I can run the OpenGL filters on Youtube input :)
[ambrus]: Corion: I mentioned that the unix event loop of Prima always wakes up at least once every 0.2 seconds. Have you found out whether the win32 event loop of Prima does that too?
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - I would assume that the onDestroy message is sent from the destructor and doesn't go through the messageloop, but maybe it is sent when a window gets destroyed but all components are still alive...
[ambrus]: Corion: partly deep source dive, partly just conservative coding even if it adds an overhead.
