in thread Company considers recoding Java app in Perl

Perl's development speed is faster, but from what I've seen of Java, trying to code 00 Perl in the style most Perl programmers use seems to be quite a bit slower. Compare the speed of Lucene versus Plucene or XProlog versus AI::Prolog. Perl loses hands down. These started as straightforward ports which is part of the problem, but their coding styles don't seem significantly different from what I see many Perl programmers use.

On the other hand, I hear people claim that when Perl is coded in a more idiomatic style, it competes quite handily, but I'd like to see benchmarks against real-world applications rather than samples.

Cheers,
Ovid

    Yes, Plucene may be much slower than Lucene. But that's because the concept was IIRC taken one-to-one. Java has it's language pro's and Perl has it's language pro's. But they're not the same.
