in reply to Code Generation with Perl?

We thought a lot about writing the book in whether to write the book in Perl, Ruby or Python. My take was that Perl programmers (of which I am happily one) would read a Ruby book and take it to heart, much more so than a Java programmer would read a Perl book.

If anyone wants to rewrite the code examples in Perl I will happily post them up on the Code Generation Network. In fact I will give a copy of the book to someone genuinely serious about re-implementing the examples in Perl.

BTW, Advanced Perl Programming has a section on code generation.

    Nice to see an author actually supporting their work :)

    I'm curious, why the decision of Ruby over Python? Executable pseudo-code seems like a very happy medium between the languages. There's even Jython to pull in a few extra people from the JavaIsTheOneLanguage audience ;-).

    I'll gladly help to convert the examples from Ruby to Python and add in some extras if you'd consider Python for a second edition. Python needs more quality books.

    I better stop before this post disappears as a Python troll ;-)

      Python was another serious contender for us. Contact me directly (jack_d_herrington@codegeneration.net), I'm very interested in your offer.
