OSCON Great Unicode Shootout slides now available | Perl | porters
This is a hottie: I'll be burning through a slide a minute.
Maybe that way they won't follow me well enough to want to
shoot me when I deliver all the bad and ugly news. :)

*Not* a pretty picture, especially for the webby languages.

* Perl wins by a landslide: just look at slides 5&6 and you'll
see that right away.

* Java comes in (a rather distant) second.

* The other 4 (or 7) are so plagued by various inherent design
flaws that I really don't know how they'll ever overcome them.
They are not suitable for even the most basic of Unicode work,
per The Unicode Standard.
