03:45 sivoais jberger: I want your opinion on something
03:49 jberger O/
03:49 jberger sivoais: what's up?
03:50 sivoais hey, so I noticed you had <https://github.com/jberger/Inline-Python-ReportLab>, but it wasn't on CPAN
03:51 jberger It never did any thing
03:52 sivoais Well, I made a small script demonstrating how it is possible to use VTK's Python bindings via Inline::Python <https://github.com/zmughal/vtk-perl-exper​iment/blob/master/test-cone-python-vtk.pl>
03:53 jberger It was only a proof of concept for a stack overflow question
03:54 jberger sivoais: cool
03:54 jberger Nice use of autoload
03:55 jberger I should say I didn't know any python at the time, so it was a doomed effort
03:56 jberger Maybe I should look again sometime
03:56 jberger Or feel free to tinker
03:56 jberger Would you like co maint?
03:56 sivoais Oh, no, my actual question was going to be
03:58 sivoais if you thought small wrappers like that should be put on CPAN. In this case, it can be a small stopgap until the large task of building XS bindings is done
03:59 jberger I am all for any kind of bindings
04:00 jberger Present is much more useful than not present
04:00 jberger Look at my math::mathematica
04:00 jberger Dumb bindings if I've ever seen them
04:01 jberger But if it helps someone then I have succeeded
04:03 sivoais hehe, well, then that sounds good to me. I just wanted to compare notes.
04:08 jberger Sure no problem
04:08 jberger Good luck!
11:49 pdurbin jberger: and now that you've learned some python you've written this: http://blogs.perl.org/users/joel_berger/2014/01/on​-the-relative-readability-of-perl-and-python.html :)
