First, thanks for the link. As a Perl programmer, I always love
seeing different Perl apps.

No. But, first, you have a bit of an interesting mix there. GTK is
not a language at all, it is the tool kit used by GNOME and XFce.
Perl and TCL are both interpreted languages, and therefore are
several orders of magnitude less efficient than C/C++/Objective C
(and even more so as compared to assembly language). In fact, though
Perl is my favorite language, in raw speed it is going to be less
efficient than even Java or .Net apps, since both of those use
bytecode to move the whole thing a bit closer to machine code.
