Dear ROOT users,
I’ve created a Perl binding to ROOT which uses the highly efficient PyROOT
binding instead of creating a native interface. This is not a SWIG based
approach which we already know about. The present binding uses a Perl
module, Inline::Python which binds any Python code from Perl seemlessly.
Since PyROOT is officially a part of ROOT and will always be in
synchronisation with the ROOT development, the present Perl binding, once
conceptually complete, should not hoefully require any substantial
The interface is a just a beginning and I’ll have to learn more about both
PyROOT as well as Inline::Python. However, I’ve already managed to run the
ROOT benchmark and convert a large number of ROOT tutorial examples.
Please look at sarkar.home.cern.ch/sarkar/PerlRoot/ for detail. I’ve so far
managed to put together only minimal documentation.
