GIMP# and NemerleNovember 25, 2007 at 3:58 pm | Posted in C#, GIMP, Programming | 2 Comments
Yet another language joins the long list of GIMP programming languages. This time it’s Nemerle. I can’t say I have studied the ins and outs of this language yet, but the syntax seems to be very close to C#. It didn’t take me very long to create a GIMP# plug-in written in Nemerle. This very basic plug-in computes the average color of all pixels of an image and fills the image with that color. What surprised me most is that the plug-in written in Nemerle was almost exactly as fast as a similar plug-in written in C#. A few months back I already reported that the same plug-in written in IronPython is 4 times slower.
Hopefully I can soon report on how well IronRuby is doing.
