OpenGL Performance: Perl vs Python, POGL vs SDL

Following their recent C vs Perl benchmarks, Graphcomp has just posted OpenGL benchmarks comparing Perl OpenGL (POGL) with Python’s PyOpenGL, and POGL with SDL::OpenGL.
Summary: POGL is over 20% faster than PyOpenGL in rendering vertex arrays, and over 60% faster than SDL::OpenGL when using POGL’s OpenGL::Array objects.
