A little history, I've tried C++, I've tried perl, but I was only able to
make progress with Python. The C++ and perl code eventually turned into a
maintenance nightmare. Not to mention it was impossible to tweak. With
Python, everything seems to runs smooth.
Also, Python is so quick to run up and get working, I was able to replace
important, complicated parts in a jiffy with experimental code. For instance,
the 3D engine has been through extensive modifications. I think I have 6 or 7
different versions lying around on the cutting floor, and I am working on
version 8 or 9. I have lost count.
I plan to write some C or C++ code eventually, but only after the python code
stabilizes and I am happy with what I see.
