Right AND it's certainly the *least efficient*, TOO, as seen from the Python programmer's time mantra!

So it's both in one. Satisfies Joe's AND Robert's recommendations.

Could you object against that advise?

Cheers,

Both erlang and nodejs provide libraries(NIF) to call C functions but none of them provide an efficient implementation for calling erlang/nodejs functions from C or C++ as far as I know. Please suggest some ideas!
