    Can i use Perl instead of C/C++ in my application?

Yes, absolutely, Perl will allow you to quickly prototype your data munging application. Unfortunately there are not many GUI building tools for the Perl GUI toolkits. There are a few to choose from, if you are on a windows box, you can use Perl/Tk, wxPerl or the Win32::GUI module. And, if you are on a Linux/*nix box, you can use the previously mentioned, less the Win32 module, or Gtk-Perl. There are other toolkits available, but from what I've seen they are not used much, or not as publicly available.

    Is Perl a better choice than C/C++?

For a class project, it probably does not make that much difference. For enterprise applications, you will probably end up using C/C++, and for web applications, you will probably end up using Perl. These choices are usually made by non-programmers, although there are a few startups that are run by programmers...I digress. :-)

    How do u rank Perl compared to C/C++?

Again, for a class project there is not much to compare. The only suggestion I can make is to evaluate what you want to get out of this assignment, i.e. learn a new language, learn to program GUI apps, etc., and then choose from there.

    Is Perl is more powerfull than C/C++?

According to the turing test for language completeness, no, they are equal. :P

Good luck with your project.

What time is it? It's Camel Time!

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
