Perk: an implementation of Java language on Parrot

[ #38292 ]

I moved my Java parsing experiment from my own SVN to the Squawk project. Squawk is intended to Parrot-based languages that are too small or immature to live on their own.

I chose the name "Perk" for my implementation to avoid any risk of Java trademarks. It's short, it reminds you of caffeine, and it's only one letter away from Perl.

If this project doesn't wither on the vine (a very real possibility, I admit) then I hope it will be source code compatible with basic Java. I have no intention of any interoperability with Java bytecode or the Java VM.

The source code is easily browsable. If anyone is interested in participating, I welcome the company. There's no way I'm going to make more than a dent in this project by myself.
