No i dont know anything about c++ or perl, ok i know what a class is :P
For me is not realy about perl it self its about the way it get used
as a tool to help build things. For me freebsd is build as a base that
can handle everything designed for it. If application need something
to help it build, it should belong to the base and not to a external
So if want to (install) buy a car and go to the (ports) shop i dont
expect to bring my (perl) wrench to the (ports) shop .

nothing wrong with that, like i said i am only asking questions.
