We all know that python is slower than compiled languages like C. But what can you do about it?

Dito for Perl. What I really like is the powerful and easy pattern matching capability. One can mix huge binaries with bit operations and laissez faires operands that stretch arithmetic to string matching without boundaries.
As always if you code to shoot yourself in the foot. The code will deliver your misery.
Clear, easy to maintain Python code? So, you're the guy.
Damn, meant perl code. Doh.
