I started a small project in Ruby some time ago. It involved a bit of
parsing and moving quite large binary data around. In Ruby speed was
real problem so I looked for another language and ended up with...
Speed of GHC compiled programs is ok for me, but if you need handling of
binaries FFI is your very good friend!
I cannot say anything about OCaml or Python, though.
