in reply to Termux, Android and Perl

I have Termux installed on my phone and tablet but have used Perl only a little, really just to test that scripts written for a Linux environment could, with minor shebang tweaking, run under Android. I don't really understand enough about how Android works, how it lays out its filesystem and how applications are segregated into their own little worlds. I don't currently have any Android/Perl projects in mind.

    I deliberately asked an open question, but let me elaborate further

    One is able to ...

    • share stuff (links, text) with termux
    • scripts in the bin directory can handle those shared things
    • install cpan modules
    • forward a link to android's browser
    • start a Web server listening on local host

    Isn't that pretty much all you need to write an "App" in Perl?


    Well what about a Perlmonks-App hosted on CPAN? :)
