I wasn't aware this was asked before. But, since it has then perhaps some people would be interested, if for nothing else but to study C/C++ for use within, above, or even below Perl.
Besides, all the other forums for this subject matter are either platform specialized, pay sites, and/or geared towards a specific knowledge level. I respect that Perlmonks has become a knowledge base of users from all knowledge levels and people are willing to share it. It would be great to see the same enthusiasm applied to other aspects of the art of coding.
