<crazyinsomniac> oh my god, it's win32 dada
I'm a Perl Hacker (yes, just another of those).
I developed some Perl modules & scripts that you can find on my homepage at http://dada.perl.it.
my biggest project is Win32::GUI, a native Win32 Graphical User Interface toolkit.
I'm also a proud co-author of this book.
I used to mantain the Great Win32 Computer Language Shootout, a massive benchmark suite to compare about 30 different languages (ranging from Perl to C, from Java to C#, from Lisp to Haskell etc. etc.). it's getting very very old, unfortunately. if you have a dedicated Windows box on which I could run it, feel free to contact me.
