Okay, credit where credit’s due: in the previous post I talked about Apple’s default installations of cyrus and PHP being substandard. Their bundled python and perl installations leave little to be desired, however. It’s pretty amazing to see PostgreSQL’s PL/Tcl, PL/Python and PL/Perl building and running on an out-of-the-box consumer OS without any additional software.

I do have one wish for the next Mac OS X release, though: please, please, please bundle readline. Much of the already included software would find and use it, resulting in a much better cli experience.
