It’s a perl


Last week I released an experimental VBS script to help run autopano in Windows.

It was subsequently improved by other Windows Hugin user, notably Pete Holzmann and Tom Sharpless, but was still inferior to the shell script available to Linux and OSX users.

Bruno Postle came up with a Perl replacement, and a compiled Perl for Windows to compensate for the lack of the scripting engine on that platform.

Tom Sharpless did it in C.

I’m happy to see my recent VBS code becoming obsolete very quickly. I prefer languages that are portable to multiple platforms. Will it be C, or will it be Perl? One thing seems to be sure: autopano-SIFT-C will be part of the upcoming hugin release.
