Why. C is just a language. I choose Perl. CUPS can be written in  
Perl. don't forget CUPS is many parts, it is a standard way of doing  
things, along with daemons along with a full set of APIs.

You can even integrate the code directly in Perl into C, just like  
you can the C into Perl.

Anyway, this is not a place to justify language choices. My choice is  
Perl as I really can't stand C, I get enough of it in XCSoar and at
