A raspi usually runs a Linux distribution, Debian or something derived from that. (Other systems like the BSDs are also possible.) So, running Perl on the raspi should be no problem, and according to the module name Device::BCM2835, I guess the code runs on the raspi. The BCM2835 is the SoC, around which the raspi was designed. 700 MHz ARM CPU and 512 MByte RAM should be sufficient for Perl and lots of other things. Some years ago, a common PC or Mac had less RAM and a slower CPU clock, and even then, running Perl on Linux or *BSD was no problem. Update: According to the Wikipedia Article, the raspi CPU performance is roughly equal to a Pentium III 300 MHz.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

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.
