Loomsday Development

Besides using C++ (QT framework), we are still developing in the Perl programming language.

Perl, among other high-level scripting languages like Python and Ruby, allows for true rapid software development. Perl's range of suitability starts at developing small tools and utilities, and ends in large projects with tens of thousands of lines of code.

What makes Perl so special for rapid development, you may ask?
  • For starters, the incredible amount of reusable Perl packages on CPAN, the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network. There are thousands of problem solutions available on CPAN. Using existing high quality code saves time and money, both in development and testing. Why reinvent the wheel when you can download wheels of all sizes at no cost?
  • Secondly, Perl code can be written very concisely without compromising readability. Again, each line saved is time saved.
  • Finally, Perl allows handling the most complex data structures in a highly dense way, which means that code changes affecting data structures usually require only the modification of a few lines of code.
