Wait. Wait. Wait...

> What we really could use, is a version of Perl, written in javascript, which can be run in browsers as javascript.

You mean like a javascript compiler that JIT perl code? How would we do it? would it compile the perl to JS? or?

Everytime I talk to you you leave me with homework ;) I've got a bit of research to do. (those links are pretty interesting).

Thanks!

    What I meant, or what I think I meant :-), was that the eventloop that runs the various javascript enabled browsers, should be accessible from other languages. So say, I wanted add a socket event to the browser's eventloop, it would be great if I could just write it in Perl, have it interpreted as pure javascript, within the browser itself, and work as intended. :-)

    Like I said, Python already has experimental work. See: Python in Mozilla PyXPCOM

[Corion]: Mhmm. Our datawarehouse is named after the department, except that the department changed its name one year ago. Now I guess I'm looking for the moral equivalent of "THE Datawarehouse", where "THE" stands for "Traditional High-valued Expertise" ;)
