I've seen what can be done with the inline modules even in Perl 5. It gives me something to think about.

    XS and Inline::C (which is essentially the same) are things that I find very attractive about perl 5, as accessing C routines by writing perl programs is far more appealing than accessing C routines by writing C programs.
    Of course, other languages also provide interfaces to C but I don't know how they compare with perl's C interface as I've not yet felt the need to investigate the alternatives.

      That I'm aware of, there's Cython and there's also a Scheme dialect called Chicken that compiles to C.
