I just wanted to note that since yesterday we have experimental=20
scripting support through Python. I wrote a plug-in that's able to=20
interpret Python script files and it works pretty well. I just have to=20
clean up things and read some docus on how to integrate our own functions=20
in Python. The goal is to be able to do scripting like animations and even =
bots in a good scripting language, and instead of reinventing the wheel=20
and writing our own language (like Gerald Scheidl wanted to do) I just=20
tried to integrate Python... to my surprise it was fairly easy :-)
Why Python ? Because a friend of mine here at work knows Python pretty=20
well and I'm able to ask him if I've got problems ;-) I'll read through=20
Some people now might ask, "Why use scripting language XYZ when we already =
use ABC ?" Just because everyone has his own favorite scripting language,=20
and if integration of other scripting languages is as easy as Python there =
is no good reason =5Fnot=5F to use it.
One big thing to do next is, besides porting the source to WindowsNT, to=20
modify configure.in to correctly detect ODB and the avaible scripting=20
languages. So if anyone knows about autoconf/automake I would be glad if=20
the one could patch configure.in :-)
Ah, btw: scripting support affects all parts of 3Dsia, we now have Python=20
support for client, server, and every other plug-in as well, due to our=20
code design :-) I tell ya, I love plug-ins ! :-)=3D)

Never worked with Python, but it looks quite fat... (even more then Perl)
Anyone an Idea of the memory usage of a "Hello World"-programm?
Or the speed?

You might check out
which has implementations of the Hellow World in many different languages.
You might download a version, (optionally compile to byte code, depending
upon language), identify size, identify performance (do a 'time hello.pl;
time hello.py; # etc')
