This depends on your particular needs, but I wouldn't overlook Perl's power as a glue language. For example, Matlab (or its free equivalent Octave) has a rich set of built-in linear algebra and signal-processing functions, and is the lingua franca of machine learning. I've often found it easier to talk to Octave over a pipe, via script files, and/or by reading and writing Octave-format text data than to rewrite code in PDL, or even to use Inline::Octave. I'm guessing things are similar in other domains.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!

    [usemodperl]: sorry veltro, venting...
    [usemodperl]: (is that wrong marto?)
    [aitap]: usemodperl: maybe it's you who has changed
    [marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
    [usemodperl]: no that's not it at all, meant safe for perl people, to not be hounded by weirdos obsessed with things like... whitespace :-)
    [choroba]: I'm definitely not obsessed with whitespace, I rate myself among Perl people, and I haven't noticed any hounding
    [marto]: "no it's not that"...."weirdos "...
    [marto]: List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN so a couple of people suggest that your code looks obfuscated. I'd have to ageree, from the perspective of those who can't follow all of that one liner, it doesn't read well
    Veltro is a weirdo, obsessed with whitespace
    [marto]: to use the word "obsession" when so few people have said so little about it is grasping at staws
