Perl playing nice with Pythonby tomazos (Deacon)
|on Oct 04, 2005 at 08:53 UTC||Need Help??|
tomazos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have just started a new job and have been handed two systems to integrate.
One is a complex testing script (for embedded systems) written in Perl.
The other is a batch processing web server written in Python.
Basically I need to get Perl and Python "talking to each other".
I was wondering if anything is available for the purposes of calling Perl from Python and visa-versa?
Do you have any general advice on integrating Perl and Python systems?
Update: Thanks for the responses. I think what I want is an "Inline::Perl" for Python. Does such a beast exist? Has someone embedded a Perl interpretter in Python?
