in reply to Manhandling image files (TIFFs) quickly

Are you sure the bottleneck is in Perl? Have you benchmarked or dproffed that? The way I understand it, PerlMagick is but a very thin layer on top of a very optimized ImageMagick. You may be spending most of the CPU's time in optimized C code already, which makes it rather pointless to start doing the remaining Perl bits in C.

This probably doesn't help you directly, but may put you in a better position when discussing this with your client.

    I'm very certain that there is nothing wrong with perl, not PerlMagick, but simply ImageMagick not being built for the speed that I require.
    ImageMagick is an excellent piece of software and does very, very well what it was designed for - unfortunately I need something faster, which means ImageMagick minus 95% of its code (leaving only the bare TIFF code, of course).

    I meant that ImageMagick would be the object to replace, rather than perl at all, in C.
    How could the problem ever be in perl? It's perfect ;)
