> I don't think it would be easy to do a NN in Perl as Perl is a very high
You're a pessimist! Perl is more than capable of doing the job...albeit about
20-30% slower than a compiled language (there is a perl compiler though), and
neural networks implemented in zsh! I'd suggest that the original poster get
some C code and do the conversion to a perl module herself/himself....would
make a good learning project.
The original poster (that's me :) is quite lazy and hates the thought of
having to convert C/C++ code to perl module ;). But you are right about that
learning project stuff... hmm... Also, why do you think it will be slower
than 'compiled language'? The module would be a C code already precompiled
and the NN processing should run no slower and no faster than any other NN
simulator written in C/C++. And the perl offers flexibility I need to
preprocess training patterns, can process a lot of different input sources
and to me seems ideal for implementing NNs. It is a bit strange nobody so far
has put together a module for this.
I've got some example Tcl scripts using these new command implentations at
www.neuroquest.com under the Documentation link. I hope this gives you some ideas.
You could even grab this lib and link in a tcl module to perl if you wished.
