in thread Pure Perl Internals (with Pure Perl Segfaults)

Eh. Sure B is compiled but by being so, it doesn't have to guess at how the compiler that constructed the interpreter arranged things in memory nor does it have to care about big vs little endian. If you do it in pure perl then you have to solve both of those problems as well.

... Oh I see. That's nicely done.
