Dear ROOT users,

I've created a Perl binding to ROOT which uses the highly efficient PyROOT binding instead of creating a native interface. This is not a SWIG based approach which we already know about. The present binding uses a Perl module, Inline::Python which binds any Python code from Perl seemlessly. Since PyROOT is officially a part of ROOT and will always be in synchronisation with the ROOT development, the present Perl binding, once conceptually complete, should not hoefully require any substantial maintenance effort.

The interface is a just a beginning and I'll have to learn more about both PyROOT as well as Inline::Python. However, I've already managed to run the ROOT benchmark and convert a large number of ROOT tutorial examples.

Please look at for detail. I've so far managed to put together only minimal documentation.
