(OT) missing perl access to anti grain geometry library?

leocharre has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

It appears there's no present and available perl access to anti grain geometry (agg) graphics rendering.. ( Who wants to do this!? (I gotta learn C++ first..) )

Wild wild stuff.. If you're into graphics and want to see some fantastic scaling of images.. preserving detail- take a look, please, I was floored.

      My reading of agg implies that it's a (new) set of algorithms for rendering vector graphics primitives with sub-pixel accuracy. However, it is not a rasterizer toolkit.

      While the Gtk2 gui toolkit includes a rasterizer for a specific standard of vector graphics, it probably doesn't use the agg algorithms under the covers.

        it probably doesn't use the agg algorithms under the covers.

        Ok, so sell me on why agg is superior? Is Microsoft or Google adopting it, or is it gonna become big?

    Wow, AGG is really cool, thanks! Long time ago, before SVG and GDI+ I wanted to write some portable routines for drawing curves, skewed ellipses etc, but gave it up after I looked at sources of ghostscript... AGG authors didn't give up apparently )))
