Be cognizant of "premature optimization" -- Don't drop to C just because you think you ought to, do it when you have to...

Also check out FFI::Platypus. Graham Ollis has a couple of youtube talks about it online: Foreign Function Interface (FFI): Never Need to Write XS Again and FFI Performance

    ctilmes has given you excellent advice. I would add that "when you have to" is usually much more of an economic issue than a technical one. (e.g. Will the improved performance, over the expected life of the program, pay for the added development cost?)

    Thank you very much for that advice, this module is extremely interesting, I will use it henceforth!
