Dear PerlMonks:

I would love to have a Perl interpreter embedded into -- nay, even compiled into -- my current job-required-runtime, be it in the browser, or in a foreign VM (yes, the JVM springs to mind, and even (whispering softly)... iOS).

I am tired of being forced to use an embedded JavaScript interpreter, or Groovy, or a one-off LISP variation, or Python, or whatnot, in order to script changing tasks and avoid compilation. I want Perl there!

Yes, I know, the rule is: if I want it, I should code it myself. I understand and agree. It just seems like this would be such a useful thing to have on so many "mini platforms" that surely somebody has ported Perl already.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
