I shall prove you wrong then. To write perl in Perl all that you need to do is write a C interpreter in Perl. But since there are plenty of working C compilers, all that you really need to do is emulate what a C compiler compiles to. Thus you need to write a virtual machine that implements the assembly language of any chip that will run Perl. Which seems to me like a doable, if useless, project. :-)
