in thread Do complicated Perl programs really exist?

It's not too often I am surprised by responses. Well not really.

Maybe you try to convince us what you are trying to accomplish. I am getting the feeling you are not on the up and up.

1. Hmmmm. Again it's a matter of opinion. Many hardcore gamers(I know)consider racing games to be rather childish

2. You have been told by a few people Perl is not a desired game development language. Source code issues

3 and 4. Guess again. You just have to look for them.

5. Awwwwww poor babushka. We won't do your work for you so you get all insulting.

It's interesting that you demand a complicated game but don't like complicated code.

Again what are you trying to accomplish. I am not buying the game player looking for a perl game story.

    Perl is a scripting language, and is about 100 times slower than C. So, certain types of games that demand faster response times cannot be written in Perl today. However, Perl can call libraries written in other languages. Perl would not be my choice to make a video game, but I wouldn't say it's not possible. Also, when machines were 100 times slower than they are now, some great games were written that are still played. These games were "complicated".

    That's all without considering that the term, "complicated game" is ambiguous.
