in thread About using rperl

If rperl is just a layer on top of Inline::CPP, then what is the advantage over patching B::Deparse to convert Perl Snippets to CPP?

For instance code like the following

sub func :cpp int { my int ($a,$b) = @_; return $a+$b }

is (after predefining :cpp and int) legal perl5 syntax and B::Deparse gets all necessary details.

sub func { (my int ($a, $b)) = @_; return $a + $b; } use attributes ('main', sub { (my int ($a, $b)) = @_; return $a + $b; } , 'cpp', 'int');

So whats the extra value of rperl?

    You tell me?

    Is it not clear? I mean you must have at this point read everything there is to read about RPerl, the faq , docs , benchmarks / examples , jokes / original discussions about creating rperl...

      Thanks for the link.
