in reply to Embedding Perl Everywhere

For iOS, you might want to check into what the jailbreak community's done to see if you can get a working interpreter; if you want to build an app around Perl, remember that at present, Apple has only loosened the rules some on embedded interpreters, but has not eliminated them. The big restriction is that no downloaded code (except Javascript for a UIWebView) can be run in any interpreter in an iOS app. You have to include the interpreted code with the app as submitted for review, or have the user type their own code into the app. You may may run into trouble (i.e., your app will be rejected) if you try to allow sharing or saving of code into iCloud.

    Fascinating! I'll have to read that restriction... it has interesting implications. For example, an image file read from the 'web can (loosely) be considered to be 'interpreted' when it is decoded. (I.E. at what point is decoding == interpretation). I'll go see... thanks for that post! ++
