tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..

He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

  • Tim Bray seems intent [] on making dynamic languages play better on the JVM. So you might yet see better Perl integration.


  • Does Perl even lend itself to this kind of integration? Probably not. I think that Python, Tcl and Ruby are more orderly internally for that kind of "port". Although, I am by no means sure, I have not seen *anything* about getting Perl on the JVM.
