Hi,

What programming language would you recommend when you need certain
parts of your project written in an optimized compiled language?
I feel that most Perl/Tcl programmers use C as a companion language for
that purpose, and it seems that most Python programmers prefer C++.
Would Objective-C make a good companion language for Ruby? Or Sather
perhaps? Both languages are available as part of the GNU compiler
collection and have good support for OO. Any Ruby programmers that have
good or bad experiences with these languages?

  Erik.
