While I'm not sure how it is in Win32, You can do embedded perl w/o too
much difficulty under Unix, and perl is, imho, a much better developed
language, esp for the purposes.

Of course, you get right down to it, if you want an interpreted language,
why don't you just go get MudOS and write a Circle-like LP driver? It'd
prolly be faster.
