in reply to TinyPerl 2.0 and new SF site.

Here's a suggestion:

TinyPerl is a great name for this project, but on the command-line the name is a bit lengthy. Consider that one of the nice things about the vi editor is that one only needs to type two letters to invoke it. So I suggest shortening the name to 'tp' for command-line use. Let's have a comparison:

tp -e 's/Charmin/Quilted Northern/g' *

versus

tinyperl -e 's/Charmin/Quilted Northern/g' *

    Great idea, but one problem. It would overlap with the tp.exe I alreayd carry on my emergency floppy -- Turbo Pascal (on older version, of course, since all of TP7 won't fit).

    I also have an assembler (two, actually), a disassembler, some linkers, a debugger, perl 4, a C compiler, a GW-style Basic interpeter, a text editor, hex editor, a terminal program, disk utils, some clever batch files, the command-line registry editor, and some other carefully selected programs all on one 1.44meg FAT-12 floppy. Hopefully tinyperl can replace perl 4 for DOS on that disk.
