I am posting this on both the perl and python groups
My intention is not to start a war or anything else, I would just like
some pragmatic advice.
My apologies to the python group I am not very conversant with Python at
this stage. that could change soon though.
I am developing a software project where a major portion of it is to
enable script access to c++ classes
The idea is to extend the basic functionality of the program by allowing
third parties to write add ons that are called by my c++ classes as
So if I call vfunction(); and an add on has been written that redefines
this function (and possibly calls the base c++ function) that it is
I have chosen perl and python as my preferred languages because of the
large developer base for add ons
The interpreter will only have a subset of the standard funtionality, for
example sockets will be removed.
Given the above which interpreter is most likely to fit my bill with the
smallest footprint ?
Thanks in advance
