Hello use Perl;

[ #20490 ]

Since the last year I found myself checking 'use Perl;' and clicking a couple of 'Recent Journal's' almost daily. Starting from that I'll try writing in my journal. The plan is to do a regular entry every two weeks.

So that's it for self motivation.

Now to my introduction.

I'm a 34 year old trained physicist, now doing software development and custumer support. Mostly I'm doing web application stuff for a Bioinformatics portal.

On the geeky side, I try to contribute to Parrot. I'm maintaining a halfway finished implementation of m4 in PIR. Currently I'm playing around with bringing YAML to Parrot. The long term vision is to do a implemention of JavaScript.

Yesterday a social meeting of the Munich Perl Mongers took place. Lively discussions were ranging from quantum dots to the state of documention of the Kwiki framework.

      The general idea is to use the parser of 'narcissus'. The parsed code is available as a JavaScript data structure. I hope to come up with a some JavaScript that takes that syntax tree and generates PIR.

      Once everything is working one could take the whole JavaScript code and compile it to PIR. This would give JavaScript fo
