I see that you want to compare C++ code with Python code? It is really not too 
smart and it is from different operas. Do C++ provides automatic malloc's, 
gargabe collection, regular expressions? Once I had asked You about 30 lines 
of Perl code for DVD decoder and you just had ignored this. O.K. I want ASK 
AGAIN: do the same with C/C++ (30-40 lines of *NORMAL*, not obfuscated code) 
and mail it source in this list. Will see.

P.S. Please DO NOT post HTML messages and turn off this feature to this list. 
Thank you.
