Javascript for Perl Hackers

[ #24656 ]
This morning I was going through my daily ritual of reading Use Perl journal entries and came across Torgo's Journal entry Higher-Order Javascript.

It got me thinking... I often find myself struggling to do simple things in javascript and end up avoiding it because I'd rather code in perl because it just seems to flow.

After reading Sean's notes it got me thinking how cool it would be to show have some kind of javascript for perl hacker's reference. Showing common perl patterns and showing the javascript equivalents.

The best examples (like some of Sean's) would be hte ones that say... It works like this in the perl world, but in javascript you can fake it like this.

Anyway, a wiki for it sounds like a first good step, anybody else have any feedback, suggestions, or comments on the idea?

Javascript is not listed, but I am reasonably sure that they would welcome additional implement
