The first time I read a C program which wrote and executed an awk program to do the 'difficult' string manipulation changed the way that I thought about the limitations of languages.
The need to do tricks like this were the force that drove me towards the 'just write the whole app in Perl' approach.
The most natural way to create a high-performance program may be to write a Perl program that writes a C++ program.
It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
