in thread About using rperl

I once agree with you, but now I don't. you think RPerl is not real perl, just because rperl is not smart enough yet.

I don't talk with Will Braswell, But I believe that his target is Rperl will be a compiler for perl which compile all no magic perl code but remain magic perl for perl itself automatically!. That would save a lot of time to manual write C/XS code for performance.

    If RPerl ever starts to be able to seamlessly e.g. mix in regexes, use $1, declare lexical vars without types, become able to use a string var as an integer without an explicit conversion, etc etc, then I will of course revise my opinion of it.
