Thank you very much (everyone) for all the interesting
I guess I don't have the same problem with the customer
building a new machine since they cost a quarter mil ($)
each, but since it is very highly tweaked already and the
only moving parts are the powder bucket and laser head,
I think if Perl is used it will probably be mainly in
developing data models which will get crunched by the
preprocessor, and maybe in a web site that handles requests.
It would be very cool though if we could have a more
realistic 3D display on the terminal but not
so sure it is needed right now.
Your links ginseng are very interesting, especially
I noticed rtlinux has gotten more mature it seems, and the
puffin page (Mat project on sourceforge) mentions that
you can have different processes written in different
I still am pretty interested though in seeing if a partly
Perl system is fast enough to write to a rotating mirror.
Not for the system mentioned above, for a simple rgb
projector setup. Another friend (a DJ)
has a powerful laser like that used in clubs but it is
mainly powered by a dedicated PCI card and an already
large library of (C,windows) programs but I'll have to
keep thinking about what is possible.
Thanks again for a very interesting post.
